Comment: Sleeping Policemen is a 4-member ensemble from Hamburg, Germany who represent the main line of a record, Eardrums Pop of which choice is based on cute indie/twee pop. I would prefer the term “meadow pop” as if music being produced somewhere in the countryside if people (especially human persons coming out from a city, “civilization”) after running around in the middle of a herd of cattle, and across the meadow and picking flowers and then arrive at a barn in the evening to produce an upbeat music. A contemporary approach to be the hippy. Even if the combo sing about visiting friends in Italy and French philosophy. Such sort of music has been popularised in the Scandinavian peninsula (mostly in Sweden during the 90s, and 00s). So if you are keen to hear such sunshiny, cloudless and careless music then do not hesitate to come close to the discography of the imprint. Yet it does not mean the release is somehow aesthetically second class even if they do not produce hell out of this 4-track outing. Bucolic guitar twangs and female and male mixed singing are wrapped up by cute synthesised strings and reverberant chords. The tempo is up and upbeat. Business as usual with regard to the outings on Eardrums Pop, one of the tracks is a cover version of the combo`s comradeship group Big Ideas` composition Jack Of All Trades. Get it for sure.
