Evan Myall Shares Forever Mine Video

Evan Myall has spent the better part of the last decade in Sleepy Sun, but we’re here to focus on his solo work today, as he readies the release of a new LP in May. It’s a pretty gentle pop ballad, working with a steady bounce from the drum beat and a nice melodic vocal that winds its way around the instrumentation. I loved that the string arrangements, building in the song’s lushness, came in almost instantly; they gave the song this depth and elegance that permeates through its entirety. His self-titled album is being released on May 8th via Royal Oakie.


Psych Pop From Fine Points

fine-points-bandFine Points is a brand new project featuring a few members of San Francsico based group Sleepy Sun.  To get us all excited for the new material, the band is offering up this new single “Astral Season”.  You will likely notice some similar sonic qualities to Sleepy Sun here, featuring pop music with several dashes of psychedelic overtones throughout.

Fine Points will drop Hover via Dine Alone Records on July 17th.

More New Music From Sleepy Sun

A little over a month ago, we heard a brand new song from Cali based rockers Sleepy Sun called “Sitvey Pond”.  Well now we have another new song entitled “V.O.G.” and it’s equally as awesome as the first.  You can find that tune below and we’ll also remind you again that the new album from Sleepy Sun, Spine Hits, hits stores next week via The End Records.  You should probably pick that shit up.

Fuzzed Out Rocker from Sleepy Sun

For their last effort, Fever, Cali’s Sleepy Sun got us off rocking with their own brand of psychedelic stoner rock, however, they still gripped tightly to a sunny side of songwriting with songs like “Rigamaroo.”  Their new effort, Spine Hits, aims to be a different beast, at least upon this first few listens.  You can grab the album on April 10th via The End Records, but for now just take a little listen to the first single. My ears sort of feel like there’s a bit of Brit-pop hiding behind the fuzzier elements of rock here, but I’ll let you be the judge. Check it!
