sleepy.ac is an alternative name of sleepy.ab coming from their newest acoustic live album “sleepy.ac「LIVE@Sapporo Kitara」”. “ac” for acoustic instead of “ab” for abstract. [ sleepy.ab ] or [ sleepy.ac ] ~ [ Acoustic ] or [ Electric ] ~ With Drummer [ Hideki Tsuha ] or Without Drummer [ Hideki Tsuha ] the band is bind to make good music. It's how they say some people are just born with the gift and sleepy is damn right one of them. This acoustic live rec is ABSOLUTELY STUNNING. DO NOT SKIP.
A combination of retro aesthetics, enduring lyrics and alt-rock grit.
The best music happens when artists refuse to remain stuck in their own comfort zones and creative boxes. Whenever this happens, they are free to give full range to their vision, and they can really come up with something that’s groundbreaking and personable. This is certainly the case here with Tommy Red and his brand new EP release, “I Wanna Be Exploited.”
