San Francisco five-piece Sleepy Sun specialize in crafting slow, churning psych-rock burners, as exhibited by their last LP, FeverAs previously reported, the group recently flew out to the California deserts with producer Dave Catching (formerly of Queens of Stone Age/Eagles of Death Metal) to record their forthcoming full-length, entitled Spine Hits. Our first listen is album opener “Stivey Pond”, which finds the group returning to their signature darkened, minor-key aesthetic.

The track chugs along behind singer Bret Constantino’s road-weary howl, creating an ominous and vaguely sinister atmosphere. However, the dark clouds are eventually broken by a spacey bridge lifted straight out of the Pink Floyd handbook. The result is something that would sound perfectly at home on the Dazed and Confused soundtrack or in the car as you road trip to Haight Asbury. Check it out below.
