The stellar debut EP, "When I Wake Up", features 5 new songs by drummer-singer Jeremy Carlstedt—protege of Chico Hamilton. It is a decidedly late '60's/early 70's-inspired indie-art-rock album with incredible playing throughout. Carlstedt's dream-like vocals and drumming momentum transports you to another time and place as does producer Tim Motzer's blues-drenched & Townshend-esque guitar playing. A record of thoughts, hopes, and feelings, "When I Wake Up" takes you on a journey you'll want to hear again and again featuring "Home" and "It's With You".

album review
Jeremy Carlstedt - 
When I Wake Up (1k022)
This rollercoaster ride of a debut from singer-drummer Jeremy Carlstedt offers echoes of the “anything goes” golden age of psychedelia. Dreamy soundscapes, scorching instrumental interludes, abstract experimental sonics, and razor-sharp guitar work from Tim Motzer combine to propel listeners through a unique sonic odyssey.
Anil Prasad, Innerviews & Guitar Player
