Biography

Polite Sleeper was formed in the spring of 2007 by Jason Orlovich and Tim Wilson in Brooklyn, NY. Prior to 2007, all three members had lived in San Francisco, where Wilson and Orlovich played along with Steven Chamberlain in the punk band The Yellow Press, and Michael Curtes played in bands including Barbarossa and nLannon. In the winter of 2007, Orlovich and Wilson self-recorded and released the Polite Sleeper debut EP on Sabotage Records, the Bremen, Germany-based label founded in 2002 which has also released albums by Japanther, Team Robespierre, and Autistic Youth. They met Curtes in the summer of 2007, and self-recorded their first full-length record as a trio, Seens, in the fall of 2007. Seens was released in the fall of 2008 by Sabotage Records. Polite Sleeper’s latest record, Lake Effect, was released on September 29, 2009 and recorded by Aaron Prellwitz (who has also recorded Death Cab for Cutie, Mark Kozelek, Erase Errata) at Seaside Lounge in Brooklyn over a period of six days in December 2008. Lake Effect peaked at #177 on the College Music Journal Top 200 charts on September 8, 2009. The album was reviewed favorably by several alternative music publications, including Tracer [1], Last Broadcast[2], Communicazione Interna of Italy[3], and IntroDE of Germany.[4] As of the end of 2009, the band has completed four European tours and several U.S. regional tours.
