Concert preview: Sleepy Sun

There's a time for sharpening your focus on the world, thinking critically about goals, and being a productive member of society. For all other times, there are drugs and psychedelic music, and local outfit Sleepy Sun delivers the latter in spades, providing the other-plane soundtrack to your dalliances with the former. Fresh from a tour opening for Arctic Monkeys — remember them? — Sleepy Sun promises a night full of soaring guitars, tribal flourishes, and an overall sense that these musicians just weren't made for these times. But it's more than just style that this Santa Cruz–born outfit is peddling. Bret Constantino and Rachel Williams' harmonies are spot-on, the group is equally adept with acoustics and electrics, and there's both toughness and elegance to the musicianship on last year's Embrace and the forthcoming Fever.
