Northern California psych-rock band Sleepy Sun sound like a younger, fresh-faced version of the Black Angels—they produce a fledgling form of the elder group's muddy guitars and fuzzy melodies—so it was only natural (or perhaps the musical hand of fate) that Sleepy Sun was plucked up by the Angels to open on their 2011 tour. And that's where Sleepy Sun solidified their place in the psych world—though previously touring with Arctic Monkeys, this was an instinctive pairing. With a new album set to release in early 2014, Sleepy Sun gives fans a bite of new material with "11:32," a free-streaming track of fuzz, drone and distortion. Catch them this week at the Detroit Bar.
