Here, kitty kitty!
St. Louis-based duo Sleepy Kitty's second effort, Projection Room, dropped this week.
Sleepy Kitty began to take shape at the end of 2008, when Evan Sult, who was drumming for Chicago's Bound Stems after an eight-year stint in late-'90s alt rock radio band Harvey Danger, met Paige Brubeck at a party. She was studying at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and playing in the all-girl band Stiletto Attack.
For a project that originally began as an outlet for the duo to do "weirdo stuff that our own bands weren't interested in doing," as Sult says. Sleepy Kitty have quickly become a full-fledged enterprise.
We are totally in love with their backstory and their music.
Based out of their self-described "art castle," a studio space in the middle of Cherokee Street in St. Louis, Sleepy Kitty is a multimedia project: the two collaborate professionally on music, rock posters, album artwork and fine art together.
