Ah, what's not to like about this North Carolina husband and wife duet, Joe and April Diaco? First of all, as a geek, their band name alone, Alt-Ctrl-Sleep, is a winner. I don't know what it says about their marriage, but the second thing I love about their self-named album is that it really makes me depressed, in a good way. I won't lie, I am drawn to all things morbid. Alt-Ctrl-Sleep makes me embrace my inner goth. Maybe too because they are a couple, they don't have strange pretensions like love and shit. No angst, just deep and smooth as a fine cognac, as evident in their track, "Take Care."
