Sleepy Sun – “Open Eyes” (Stereogum Premiere)

After San Fran sextet Sleepy Sun’s debut Embrace landed here, half-baked on a hazy wave of mountain folk and sporadically sludgy ’70s stoner thunder (with the videos for “White Dove” and “Red/Black” to match), we began counting the days their follow-up, Fever, which is ready to break next month. Its first single is “Open Eyes,” an ironic title for a band and song so heavy-lidded and bong-bastic. For fans of Mountain, Black Mountain, mountains. And weed.
