Sleepy Sun

[audio:] Sleepy Sun – “New Age”

SF’s Sleepy Sun–fresh off a European tour including stops at the Primavera and All Tomorrow’s Parties festivals–is back in the US and gearing up for the release of their debut album Embrace on ATP Recordings on June 16th. The record, which mixes psych rock freakouts, folky intimacy and otherworldy sounds, is simply one of the most exciting releases of the year and very much worth checking out.

The band’s live show is equally captivating, and you’ve got a can’t-fail chance to see them Friday, June 19th at the Great American Music Hall, where they’ll be celebrating the new album’s release. LA’s Spindrift, locals Assemble Head in Sunburst Sound and DJ Wet Burrito also perform.

9pm, $13, All Ages.
