Editorial Reviews

Originally from Santa Cruz but now based not far away in the spiritual home of psychedelia, San Francisco, this six piece (all aged 22-23) presents their soulful take on psychedelia. Drawing musical inspiration from BLACK SABBATH, CAN and CREATION RECORDS, they forged their sound in intense jams. But mellower NEIL YOUNG / MMJ moments are as much a part of their approach, giving the heavier moments even more impact. Their debut was produced by COLIN STEWART who did an amazing job on BLACK MOUNTAIN's last opus.

Format: Audio CD
This is a subtle & stunning debut album from this San Francisco band. There's a weirdly dynamic psychedelic
landscape in a desolate sea of guitars that's dark & beautiful, with the occasional noise overload
and flourishes of lurid energy, all delivered with emotional grit & intimate attention to detail.
References are Black Mountain, Loop, Jefferson Airplane, Drones, White Hills, Comets
On Fire, Citay, Dead Meadow.

Format: Audio CD
Six-piece indie / psych band's first (of two, so far anyway) CD and every bit as good as it's follow-up 'Fever' (see my review). Tracks that managed to pull me right in were the seven-minute opener "New Age", the group's namesake "Sleepy Sun", "White Dove" which sort of reminds me of Bardo Pond, "Snow Goddess" and the well-played "Duet With The Northern Sky" that more than showcases the near-brilliance of Bret Constantino's and Rachel William's (doesn't look like she was on the previously mentioned 'Fever' CD) pipes. Also liked "Golden Artifact". Definitely, a should-have.

Incredible psychedelic album, one of the best current psych albums I've heard. Sleepy Sun is an awesome band, and this is my favorite album of theirs.
