2010 release from the California band from the San Francisco Peninsula where Kesey raged and the Dead were once Warlocks, and where they birthed the Sleepy sound: dead Blues shaken alive, razor sharp and ramblin', Soul, sonic science and dead-on Pop surgery. Fever is the honey harmonies and danger wailing pulled from a tender tangle into steel-strong braid; the wing-on-wing guitars in screaming dives and sweet ascending circles; the lowdown served up tough and thundering from drum and bass authorities.
Fantastic neo-psychedelia. Tripping without chemicals...

"I just learned of this band from the SXSW Ioda sampler Amazon put out last month and I came away impressed. Now that I've bought both "Fever" and their debut "Embrace," I have hope for the future of rock music.
Sandstorm Woman, the 9th and final track on this album is a blistering, soaring, trip inducing epic of rock. I can't recommend it highly enough; it is the highlight of the album. I also love Wild Machines: Very heavy & powerful. But other songs like Rigamaroo, Ooh Boy, & Acid Love, while not fillers, seem to be breathers. Songs that you play to let the audience cool down before blasting off with Desert God or something from Embrace.
If you're a fan of bands like Cream, Iron Butterfly (which I actually don't care for), the Jimi Hendrix Experience, or even Stone Temple Pilots and Nirvana I'm sure you'll be putting Sleepy Sun into heavy rotation."
Genuine psychedelic rock with a classic feel

"San Francisco band deliver a strong second album of brilliant, flowing, carefully orchestrated
psychedelic rock that moves with power & grace from gorgeous neo-folk/blues to soaring guitar/
keyboard rock trips--all topped with some captivating vocal harmonies. Sleepy Sun paint 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 &
an intimate attention to detail that invites repeated listening. References are Black Mountain,
Loop, Jefferson Airplane, Drones, Comets On Fire, Citay, Dead Meadow.
