It was a pleasure to have a chat with Sam Benge from Sleepy Wolf – he admitted he was probably the sleepy part of the duo!
The reason for that was no doubt because we spoke to him after a hectic day – he teaches music to different groups of sudents as well as looking after a little fellow, and spends time rehearsing and recording with various acts that he’s part of. You might have heard of the The Mutes (from Mars) – a cool band that Sam mentors.
As well as a chat with Sam, I featured two tracks from Sleepy Wolf’s debut, Counjure and Abundance. The whole album is full of well-crafted and interesting songs. I really enjoyed listening to Karin Bettley’s voice – but couldn’t quite pick who she reminded me of. Leave a comment if you have thoughts on that.
The album is out on Monkey Records.
