Festival in the Forest Spotlight: Sleepy Sun

With the Festival in the Forest approaching, I’m anxiously tearing pages off my calendar (rather, carving tally marks into my cell wall with a rusty shiv). Point is, I’m excited. And to spread that joyous anticipation, I’d like to start featuring some of the bands that’ll be making the weekend unforgettable.

Being lost is both liberating and frightening; no direction is advantageous, but every choice is responsible to the wanderer. Sleepy Sun’s songs, mellifluously flowing between bittersweet balladry and paranoid, hazy atmospherics, are like a 2am car ride — not going somewhere, not coming back, but taking an unexpected detour through uncertain terrain.  A sublime fog, the mood is both assured and undefined, leaving me to drift, to slither, through a spectrum that ranges from the nostalgic to the anxious, from the freewheeling to the claustrophobic.
