Could Eat, Would Sleep is the fourth studio EP from the American rock band Yawn Mower.
The five-track EP was released with Mint 400 Records, on April 20, 2018. The recording is by Yawn Mower and Paul Ritchie, at Insidious Sound in Neptune City, New Jersey with partial recording and mixing by Pat Noon, at Eightsixteen Studios and Tracks East in South River, New Jersey, with the mastering by Bill Azimuth at Azimuth Mastering. The album photography is by Mike Burke at Motion City Media in Asbury Park, New Jersey.
Could Eat, Would Sleep is described as "crunchy hooks, fabulously fuzzy guitars, big bopper drums and an alluringly quirky outlook," and it draws comparison to the music of the heavy metal band Black Sabbath, and the folk punk band the Front Bottoms.
"Kickstand" was released as a single on April 1, 2018, along with the track "It's All Non-Stop." The music video was directed by Michael Burke.
In the Asbury Park Press Chick describes "Local Summer" as a "tribute to the post-Labor Day days at the Jersey Shore when the tourists leave but the days are still warm [...] the song is half carefree because when local summer comes around, everybody who is local is excited because they feel they're going to get their beach town back from everybody who comes and vacations over the summer[,] but last year there was a bunch of drownings in and around Monmouth County. The drownings put a damper on it and it was a very sad time."
"Local Summer" also appears on NJ / NY Mixtape, and "It's All Non-Stop" on the fourth annual 24 Hour Songwriting Challenge.
Music journalist Jim Testa included Could Eat, Would Sleep in his Top NJ Releases of 2018, saying the album is a "combination of impressive musicianship with goofy elan recalls a lot of what Jersey does best, mixing quirky humor with power-fuzz guitars and defiant insouciance." The Aquarian Weekly says "Operators (Are Standing By)" is reminiscent of Nirvana, noting the song "captures an era that disappeared long ago."
