I discovered Ty Segall about a year ago via 6 music and loving most things DIY and garage bought a chunk of his back catalogue. Sleeper sees Mr S in a more mellow mood than previous outings but is no less great for it.
If you want something more rockin' pick up his previous release Twins, but if you're looking for a bit of light, surfy psychedelics you could do worse than grab a copy of this.

I'm very suspicious with all the hype related to new records, and mainly, related to new artists... I commonly listen to stuff that critics "sell" as the Next Big Thing that I consider nothing but crap... This guy is special... All the record have a kind of "Barrettiesque" feeling. The songs are honest, mainly acoustic and very laid-back, away from big studio productions and very different from his FUZZ project. In my opinion this record will stand among others. Easily one of the best of the year along with the ones like Matthew E. White, Bill Callahan, Roy Harper, Dead Meadow, Foxygen, The Flaming Lips, Nick Cave, The Savages and Cage The Elephant, just to name a few... If you like honest and simple music with a little of weird/ psych/ low-fi americana this will be your stuff...
