this 2010 album is good. check it out. from one of the bands featured on the new UNKLE album.

can imagine a decent clump of people from this board liking this album, once noticed.

before you whine about the thread, just remember, I DON'T CARE.

the reason i like and appreciate this band/this album is because i feel a sense of odd guilt listening to it

this is REALLY kinda like COUNTRY and i just feel very weird and betraying to myself but i'm ENJOYING it so much

the vocals... i picture females with mullets... but for some reason it's excusable; it's GOOD

the 'progrock' in the songs amounts to something tangible; having longevity

especially considering my poor choice of words in describing it. they're not the typical sound in vocals that i would enjoy.

well-stated.

i find the entire album very comprehensive; it's fantastic in that regard... but what are some of your favorite tracks?

also have you heard the 2010 album by DR. DOG called SHAME, SHAME? if not, i really recommend it to you. it grew on me at a similar pace and in very similar ways FEVER did.

it's a cool video but i'm really not a fan of the song. it pretty much only features Rachel singing and none of the rest of the band. it fits with the UNKLE theme i suppose, but i just don't feel as though it's any representation of Sleepy Sun's sound or other work.

it's not supposed to sound like sleepy sun

i posted it because it's a project that this band collaborated with other artists on. i just saw the video yesterday.

it would be pretty dumb if UNKLE collaborated with them on their album and they sounded like sleepy sun

darryl, i've been a really big UNKLE fan for over a decade. in fact i never would have listened to sleepy sun in the first place if not for this track on the 2010 UNKLE album.

fucking haterz!

PassiveTheory
06-09-2010, 03:47 PM
Maybe UNKLE wouldn't sound like the same rehashed garbage that James Lavelle has been peddling since losing out on DJ Shadow services over a decade ago if it did sound more like Sleepy Sun, just saying.

Anyway, I'm going to the CD release show for free so this will be an awesome way to celebrate the start of summer!

sleepybrew
06-09-2010, 08:09 PM
I'm not hating, that's for sure. I had an opportunity to hear the original demos from the Sun's on the UNKLE album and they were way better. I fucking love sleepy sun, i just think that song is boring and UNKLE hasn't done much that I really enjoy since Shadow's Psyence Fiction.

Have fun at the CD release show Passive! I'd like to go but 3 shows in 3 weeks in the City has put a dent in my pocket book, so I'm just gonna catch them here in Reno Friday night. Let's get weird!

Sleepy Sun were fucking amazing at Pappy and harriets .I got the fever on vinyl and White dove on a 7 ". I got to talk to some of the members after their show and they were chill.I just wish their setlist included "Wild Machines" and "White Dove"

i think their setlist is something like this
Marina
Rigarmo
new age
New song
New song
Ohh boy
open eyes
Golden Artifact?
Desert God
Sandstorm women

it was around ten songs


Also some desert hippie girl had brought a projector and was making crazy visuals with food dyed water and a glass plate while the band played

sleepybrew
07-26-2010, 02:48 AM
GB, that sounds like the setlist they've been playing on their recent tour. glad you guys have been able to catch them. definitely a band that raises their sound to a new level live. only on their longer set times (usually SF shows) do they have the time to break out the full live versions of Wild Machines and especially White Dove. If anyone is inclined, check out their Daytrotter session. More stripped-down and mellow versions of their songs.

i don't fully understand Pitchfork's criticism of the new album. especially after they gave Embrace a positive review. oh well, they rock and hopefully the get a spot on the Coachella 2011 poster

getbetter
07-26-2010, 12:46 PM

Yeah, they had some major problems with Rachel. They are looking into another female vocalist and beginning to write their third album. But Bret, the male lead singer, writes all the music and lyrics so most of Sleepy Sun should sound the same. Hopefully :)

Sleepy Sun found a new record label in the US, still keeping ATP for Europe. They are recording a new album in December, should be out in April. They are playing SXSW too. Look for songs more in the 4 min range on the next album and closer to 12 tracks instead of the usual 8 they have on previous albums.

I'm always a fan of these guys, so I thought I'd share the news.

You know the girl(Rachel Fannan) from Sleepy Sun's Fever and Embrace albums isn't in the band anymore so the band isn't really the same anymore.

they actually never replaced Rachel. they've been playing and writing without a female singer for about a year now. it is a different sounding band. some things are better some worse. for the most part, I think they are better without her, but I recommend checking them out live again if you have the chance. obviously it's better to hear it for yourself than hear my pretty biased opinion :)

I've seen them w/out her... Not better imo. That photos from a warehouse show several years ago, still one of the best shows I've ever been apart of.

I looked at SXSW's site and did not see them listed. Link, anyone?

New full tour dates are up on their facebook page. The album rocks, trust me. Look for the track Martyr's Mantra. It's gonna kill live, and look for them at Coachella 2013 ;)
