Sloppy Jane is an experimentally driven indie rock band led by Brooklyn-based LA native Haley Dahl who makes music that is never quite wedded to a particular genre and can be fairly unpredictable and challenging. Their most recent album, Madison (2021), is a collection of songs that are cinematic in scope and play like chamber pop pieces (see Bon Iver, Beirut). The whole album was recorded in a cave, and the music was written with that in mind. Their work was quite mercurial up to that point, with songs shifting in tone and tempo, alternating between harsh blues riffs and child-like rhymes or vocals, and so on. Dahl has an inherent sense of playfulness and whimsy in her songs, both musically and lyrically. She also brings a lot of depth. She seems to like having her music follow some narrative arc and her stage shows are carefully crafted performance pieces that are also worth checking out.
