Sleep Well Beast ranked 4 in the top albums of 2017 as voted by KEXP listeners. The album is an exploration of the intersection between the personal and the political: "How you respect yourself or someone else in the most immediate relationship is political" says frontman Matt Berninger. The choices we make in one area are constantly being informed by the other.
