    Its confident shape-shifting compositional power and instrumental thunder make for one of 2014's most immediate and satisfying releases.

    On Sleepwalking Sailors, Helms Alee finally feels bigger than the sum of its parts.

    With a sound that tends to drift between the discordant jangle of the Pixies and the powerful sonic gut-punch of the Melvins, the trio weave together a dense tapestry of moody noise rock that seems to constantly shift and change directions.

    It is unquestionably their finest, and strangest, work to date.

    Helms Alee doesn’t slough any of its previous interests wholesale, and each aspect of their musical personality is too distinct to camouflage with the rest. But the seams now crisscross in brilliantly unsuspected patterns, giving each element its space and the benefit of contrast.

    Don’t expect an ordinary cruise through placid conditions; this is music for those who love weathering a storm.
