Sleepy Sun sounds like a trip taken in the warmth of California, rambling through the magic land, where the trees grow for a thousand years, your head full of gorgeous, fuzzy noise.

This is not a band that is experimenting to find a sound, for they have it: psychedelic, guitar-driven wildness that is, somehow, warm and internal too. The vocals sound far off like voices in a dream, or a trip taken with a chemical travel agent, as the guitars wail and the drums propel each step forward on the journey.

Hailing from northern California, the band formed six years ago and has traveled extensively, mostly in vans, to play and promote their recorded material and put on live shows that are, like their music, a combination of restraint and abandon. This is head music, as in "Feed your head."

Based on the excellent riffs of Matt Holliman and Evan Reiss on guitar and the stoned out vocals of Bret Constantino, the sound could be lost and nebulous if not for the strong rhythm section of Brian Tice and Jack Allen as they provide that element that every good trip needs: a touch of grounding.

Playing the two songs from their recent 7" single release, and one from their 2012 full album, "Spine Hits," this Live at KDHX session should allow your mind to fly, even while you're in your favorite armchair.
