Infused with elements of classic rock'n'roll, 90s alternative rock and modern indie elements, Midnight Spin will release their debut album Don't Let Me Sleep today. In conjunction with the albums' release, we are giving away the title track "Don't Let Me Sleep," which just premiered on Rolling Stone. "The song was sort of a prayer-like plea just hoping I could literally stay awake long enough to finish making the album, " says Midnight Spin's lead singer Mike Corbett. "I wrote the lyrics around 3 A.M. one night and recorded the vocals at the studio a few hours later."
Produced by Justin Gerrish (Vampire Weekend, the Strokes, Weezer), Don't Let Me Sleep is the result of endless bleary-eyed practice sessions and late night stumbling across the East River that has inspired and yielded a full-length album worthy of its name. From Cohen spacing the record with wurlitzers and organs to Scull bashing it out like the Grohl of yore, the twelve-song LP combines 90s alternative and punk energy with modern indie elements from their Brooklyn home. As Consequence of Sound writes, "Imagine if Foo Fighters somehow grew up as fans of early The Killers with a little of the Strokes tossed in for flavor." It's an album that just can't stop chasing the night.
Don't Let Me Sleep scrapes together everything you once loved about rock music and makes it hum again like a dirty, little noise-box from the future. Catch the band on tour in a city near you.
