Sleeply Sun @ ATP
Sleepy Sun

Autolux and Sleepy Sun completed their tour together last night (9/15) at Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn. They played Bowery Ballroom one night before that (how were those shows?), and ATP in Monticello right before that.

Neither band is done touring though. Autolux have more dates starting tonight (9/16) in Pittsburgh. Sleepy Sun continue with a second Brooklyn show... now 100% revealed, you can catch them tonight at Union Pool with Assemble Head in Sunburst Sound tonight (who they're also touring with into October).

A set of pictures of both bands from ATP (with a review still coming), below...

I thought Autolux were great. Also, Sleepy Sun put on a fantastic set.

Autolux were pretty dull at Bowery. Sleepy Sun were ok but pretty unoriginal sounding. They sound like they're trying too hard to be a cross between Led Zep and Jefferson Airplane.

i didn't know sounding like a cross between zeppelin and jefferson airplane was a bad thing.

It's not, I just didn't think their songs were particularly interesting.

Sleepy Sun were pretty much a Black Mountain cover band, although lacking a strong bass presence.

Autolux were good @ Bowery, although I was a little disappointed they didn't bring any homemade lights with them this time. Eugene seemed pretty sick, which he admitted, and Carla seemed like she was on another planet.

Autolux were kind of some next level shit at ATP. Sleepy Sun is just the more attractive, less Canadian version of Black Mountain. Stupid.

Black mountain and sleepy sun are not that similar. Both psychedelic yes but black mountain is a lot heavier overall. If you think they are the same thing then you are not really paying attention

Somewhat heavy (SOMEWHAT) psych revival with girl/boy vox for white kids to get high to...pretty much serve the same purpose.

Did you notice where I said "lacking a strong presence"..? Hence they're not as heavy. they don't have the riffs or musicianship that Black Mountain does, but they have the raspy female vocals dueling against the lazy dude vocals amongst a mess of delay pedals and crashing drums. the fuck outta here you nob jockey.

Weird Owl is on the bill tonight at Union Pool as well.

Sleepy Sun slayed. Don't be such queers.

Sleepy Sun was fuckin awesome @ MHOW. Plus, their record is better than both of Black Mountain's. AND, they are most certainly HEAVIER than Black Mountain both on record and live. Shit ruled. Autolux was fuckin sweet, too. New jams are stellar.

i can't believe everybody is arguing/taking about sleepy sun in this post. WHAT ABOUT AUTOLUX? THEY MELTED THE PLACE DOWN.

Nobody's talking about Autolux because they suck, Sleepy Sun kicked all kinds of ass and outshined the headliner big time. Love Sleepy Sun.

Sleepy Sun was great but they def DID NOT outshine Autolux! Autolux was fuckin' perfect. Sleepy Sun hope to be that good one day.
