Helms Alee could very well be celebrating the Super Bowl win for the Seattle Seahawks, and they could easily be stuck in Pioneer Square as I write this. However, they are also ambitious about getting their new album out next week Tuesday. Sleepwalking Sailors (Sargent House) are a hybrid in many ways, from the components of the band to the different musical styles they incorporate on the new release (my review of which will be posted here very soon). A month from now they will be joining Russian Circles and KEN Mode to bring their music and new album to the people, beginning at home before making it to Chicago at the near end of winter.
