First of all, this fantastic album is not on the Tee Pee label, nor is the band all together. I thought i would post it anyhow seeing as through Tee Pee and The Assemble Head in particular, i discovered their wonderful music. Just another reason i am itching to get my hands on the new Assemble Head is that these guys contributed on one of the new tracks titled "Two Birds".
Sleepy Sun is an apt title for this young San Francisco sextet, as their debut record, “Embrace”, is one of those rare slabs of rock and roll that will wake you up in the morning, and send you off to sleep at night. After honing their craft in the occult influenced creative community of Santa Cruz, the band has continued to grow, both creatively and in their loyal following, since their relocation to the city by the bay. With their throbbing rhythm section, swirling sea of guitars, and dreamy, haunting duet vocals, the word dynamic is a severe understatement. Though the press is quick to rifle off a laundry list of rock’s greatest ghosts to describe their sound, one live show is all you need to know Sleepy Sun have stumbled upon something very much their own. Having performed their raw, high-energy show on stages shared with acts such as Howlin’ Rain, Earth, Dead Meadow, and Citay, they are quickly establishing themselves as a very tough act to follow. Fans at shows are known for shouting the band’s battle cry, “Let’s get weird”. If the group continues down their rapid road to success, things are about to get very weird indeed.
Feel free to stop by and check out some of the goodies that have passed through my ears throughout the last few years. Delve into the archive and find something from every which era/genre. I more or less post psych/prog/folk/fusion stuff, although i do like to mix things up from time to time. Please leave a request or a general message in my chatbox, i always enjoy reading your feedback.
I'd also like to add that i think we should all be supporting these artists and the amazing work they do by buying the actual records or going to shows etc. So consider this a preview, if you enjoy what you find here, go buy it. Oh, and if anyone at any time wants me to take an album/link down from this page just shoot me an email or leave a comment in the desired post.
