Sam Cooper & The Sleepwalkers Kickstarter

Sam Cooper and his band The Sleepwalkers are extremely generous with their output of roots rock and Neil Young-influenced psychedelic Americana. Their fully-loaded Bandcamp page has, by my count:

And of course, this being Bandcamp, you can stream it all for free too. This is a band that has clearly embraced the new reality of distributing music and gaining fans in 2012. Choosing DIY instead of working for a label, The Sleepwalkers are Kickstarting their new record, called Titled: An Album of Songs Named By You. They want to record 50 instrumental tracks and are crowdsourcing the song titles to inspire their creation. Their modest financial goal is already more than half met, so you shouldn’t wait to lend a hand to this innovative and captivating local band.



Sam Cooper & The Sleepwalkers – False Dawn video

DC music video of the day! Local troubador Sam Cooper and his band The Sleepwalkers start off a night of great music at the Velvet Lounge tonight, opening for The NRIs, another great band to catch. Sam Cooper’s Bandcamp page has a lot of EPs and albums for you to peruse, and most of them are available for free! Sam’s 2010 album Red Horses is the source for today’s video, the melancholy ballad False Dawn.
