    I thought the album was good. This is definitely the type of music I listen to, although I wouldn't consider Sleepy Sun or other bands like them as Indie. They are more of a psych-rock band which is obvious in all songs on this album. The use of the Fuzz pedal in the first song reminds me of bands from the classic rock era that predominately used this kind of effect. I also like the female vocalist, I am a sucker for falsetto and she has a unique voice. The arrangement and textures take me back to the Late 60's when the rock scene was in its prime Expand

  1. Sleepy Sun aren’t above dispelling the perceptions of over indulgence, and they may always be tarred thus, but Fever at least proves there’s a renewed clarity to go with the lozenge-smooth lethargy, even if it isn’t totally clearheaded.
  2. Although the album is full of brilliance, album opener ‘Marina’ stands headstrong above the others in terms of scope and grandeur, a dirty distorted guitar solo coupled with an African style instrumental and tribal chorusing sees ‘Fever’ go from commendable to a masterpiece.
  3. Fever then, is an album with an audience already writ large. If the idea of ‘cosmic jams’ brings you out in a cold sweat, then this isn’t a record for you.
