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.
GroundBurst is an instrumental rock trio whose sound strikes for the band’s kaleidoscopic approach and wide-open mindset. The band consists of Phil, Si, and Erik, respectively on guitars, bass & keys, and drums. These three talented musicians set out to create a lush, diverse and textural musical backdrop, borrowing from influences as diverse as electronic music, psychedelia, rock and even jazz with a minimalistic flair. Their recent release, “Triad” is an EP featuring 3 original compositions, as the title of the release might lead you to guess!
