Sleepy Soldier finds Tanna Leone pushing the boundaries of his creative expression while embracing a certain emotional complexity in his storytelling. The core message of the album is love, humanity and endurance. He likes to describe it as “human music” – honest about the span of emotions we all go through in a single day on this planet – all the sadness, disappointment and stress, but also the joy. In a perfect counterpart to that vast scope of feeling, Sleepy Soldier offers up such sonically eclectic tracks as “Picasso” (a punk-leaning anthem that transforms frustration into pure catharsis) and “Death n’ Taxes” (a gorgeously ethereal, guitar-laced piece graced with wisdom Tanna gained during a mind-expanding trip to the ocean). Red vinyl LP.

Vinyl: $45.98 Buy
Tommy Boy Records celebrates the 30th Anniversary of House of Pain's debut album House of Pain (Fine Malt Lyrics) with a remastered, limited edition deluxe version release featuring re-imaged artwork by renowned artist, Tristan Eaton, on July 22, 2022. Everlast, DJ Lethal & Danny Boy formed House of Pain while attending high school and were signed to Tommy Boy Records after fashioning themselves as rowdy Irish-American hooligans, hitting the local rap & alternative music scene. Their debut album House of Pain (Fine Malt Lyrics) was released in 1992 and went multi-platinum, thanks to the smash hit single "Jump Around" which was produced by Cypress Hill's DJ Muggs. The song hit #3 on the Billboard Top 100 Chart in the US and charted Top 10 globally, including in the UK & Canada. "Jump Around" has been named one of the best songs in Hip-Hop (NME, VH1, Q Magazine, The Source) and continues to remain not only a club classic, but a sports anthem with one of the most recognizable beats in hip-hop history. House of Pain (Fine Malt Lyrics) also features Cypress Hill member B-Real on "Put Your Head Out" and Funkdoobiest's Son Doobie on "House and the Rising Sun", both members of the musical collective Soul Assassins and a remix of "Jump Around" by Pete Rock. Q magazine "... their music is of the dense, hard-hitting school of hip hop... The group have absorbed black rap's musical lessons and create a satisfying platform for their above average deliveries... " The Source "... a very solid and at times exceptional album... imagine if Licensed to Ill wasn't an upper middle class Jewish thing but rather a working class Irish thing... The atmosphere is like that of a cross between a frat party and a bar room brawl... "
