Sleepercar:: West Texas on Jay Leno tonight

Sleepercar released West Texas recently, gathering accolades from new converts and old. With an album called West Texas, one might guess the sort of American inspired rock played by Sleepercar. Certainly a departure from Sparta, in terms of melodies that are catchy and soulful, fitting more along side The Old 97’s, Tom Petty and Bruce Springsteen. Jim Ward of Sleepercar (also of Sparta and ex-At The Drive In) is preparing for their debut national television performance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. Sleepercar originated in a moment of solitude while Jim Ward was waiting to soundcheck on what turned out to be the last At The Drive In tour.
