Sleepy Sun are a lolloping pysche-rock beast crawling out from under some remote rock. 7 minute epic "New Age" opens the album with stark drum patterns and dreamy vocals that envelop the listener. "Lord" is next up and introduces Sleepy Sun's range with soulful crooning and melancholic piano that comes off like Magistrates with talent or Cold War Kids with a desire to be anything but safe. "White Dove" is in Black Mountain country with huge, brain-frying riffs and heavy wigging out. The closer is folkier than any of the above and witnesses acoustic, campfire-like sing-alongs and harmonica that reprise the bucolic feel of almost-but-isn't title-track "Sleepy Son". Poor marks for consistency, and stodgy in parts (see "Red/Black"), Embrace is nevertheless a welcome addition to this year's roster.

I've Just finished listening to the Embrace album. Wow! I'm blown away.

These folk are serious musicians with superb imaginations...If you're into Psychedelic Blues/Jazz Rock with a vintage feel these guys are well worth checking out...So nice to see real musicians cutting through the sterile corporate rubbish that is the Music industry today.

It sounds like Hendrix meets the Floyd with a hint of the Doors, but unlike the usual 'vintage' copies these influences have been firmly brought into the present within the band's own style.

P.S - This style of music is like watching a painting unfold, it's highly creative and is executed with dedicated craftsmanship, very thought's not music to make you dance or numbing background music for a bar, and if you have the attention span of a small child, then this probably won't be for you either. ;)

I bought this CD as I had one Embrace CD, which I loved. I disliked this one immediately. It was the kind of music that I hate, very vague and mystical. I listened to it once and didn't want to go through listening to it again. Don't bother buying it (unless you like vague and mystical)! Rubbish.

5.0 out of 5 stars dynamic & detailed psychedelic rock 25 Mar. 2010
By Charlie Quaker - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This is a subtle & stunning debut album from this San Francisco band. There's a weirdly dynamic psychedelic
landscape in a desolate sea of guitars that's dark & beautiful, with the occasional noise overload
and flourishes of lurid energy, all delivered with emotional grit & intimate attention to detail.
References are Black Mountain, Loop, Jefferson Airplane, Drones, White Hills, Comets
On Fire, Citay, Dead Meadow.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sleepy Sun - 'Embrace' (ATP Recordings) 26 Sept. 2011
By Mike Reed - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Six-piece indie / psych band's first (of two, so far anyway) CD and every bit as good as it's follow-up 'Fever' (see my review). Tracks that managed to pull me right in were the seven-minute opener "New Age", the group's namesake "Sleepy Sun", "White Dove" which sort of reminds me of Bardo Pond, "Snow Goddess" and the well-played "Duet With The Northern Sky" that more than showcases the near-brilliance of Bret Constantino's and Rachel William's (doesn't look like she was on the previously mentioned 'Fever' CD) pipes. Also liked "Golden Artifact". Definitely, a should-have.
5.0 out of 5 stars one of the best current psych albums I've heard 27 Dec. 2014

Incredible psychedelic album, one of the best current psych albums I've heard. Sleepy Sun is an awesome band, and this is my favorite album of theirs.
