Olympia’s Bad Sleep is a band I am just now hearing about, but wish I had known about sooner. No Fun is the three piece’s second release, and contains five songs of punk/power pop goodness. The fuzzy guitars and strong drums give me a bit of a Jabber meets Upset with a Lipstick Homicide and Bleached vibe, which I love. I’ll probably keep this limited-to-one-hundred release tape on repeat all winter, and hope it doesn’t do that thing where the tape player eats the ribbon because of listening to it so much. Fingers crossed for a full length Bad Sleep album in the future, because I definitely want more. –Cynthia Pinedo (
