Over the course of three albums Bloomington, Indiana trio Sleeping Bag has quietly earned a cult following by making catchy indie pop spiked with angular postpunk. Now, founder Dave Segedy is stepping out on his own for a solo album, Schrodego, out March 10 on Old Flame Records, with a cassette edition on Jurassic Pop.

Most of the tracks on Schrodego were recorded in just one or two takes, giving tracks like “Walk Around”—which combines a vocal melody reminiscent of the Beach Boys with overblown guitars that are a little closer to Pixies territory—a deeply casual quality. It’s like listening to your friend’s stuff that they recorded on their four-track after a couple beers, except you don’t have to lie when you tell them it sounds really cool.
