Sleeping In The Aviary Fly Coop For Winter Tour


Minneapolis group Sleeping In The Aviary loves to chase different genres. On their first album Oh, This Old Thing? the band cranked lo-fi punk songs that drew comparisons to the Buzzcocks and the Thermals.

On their second album the band tried their hand at indie folk, with Expensive Vomit In A Cheap Hotel being compared with Bright Eyes and Baptist Generals.

The band’s third album, Great Vacation, just came out last week. This time, the group has gone the way of layers of backup vocals and pop songs, with instruments like harps and trumpets making appearances (in addition to the creepiest cover art of the year).

The band will be on a national tour starting in January to support the new album. You can catch them, in all their lo-fi punk, indie-folk and pop glory, at
