Sleepy Sun shine


ALL this recent Mercury Prize talk has got me in the mood to look back at the past year of releases - and one album that demands a mention is Sleepy Sun's dawning.
Akin to last year's In The Future by Black Mountain, one of my Albums Of The Year no less, their debut LP Embrace sees classic rock and stoner rock coming together.
And into this mix, the San Franciscan band - whose motto is "let's get weird" - add a covering of acid-soaked, spaced-out psychedelia.
It's a heady feedback-drenched mix - especially as most of the tracks on the album, which was released back in May, are seven-minute epics.
If you want to fly your freak flag high, Embrace is definitely one to hang on to.
