Team Sleep is the eponymous debut studio album by American alternative rock band Team Sleep, largely produced by Greg Wells (Rufus Wainwright, Creeper Lagoon, and Mika).

An interesting aspect of this album is that despite its electronica and hip hop veneers, it's still a guitar album from somebody who clearly grew up on rock music. The guitar is dominant on every single song on this album and the interplay between vocals, guitar, and drums (which are often live instead of electronic) obeys the laws of most rock music (verse-chorus-verse structure, soft-loud dynamics, et.
