Amor Fati – [Sleepy Dog]

Making their first appearance to the Lyrical Lemonade pages today is Boone, North Carolina indie band Sleepy Dog with their new album, Amor Fati. I was first introduced to them by recommendation from a friend around the summer of 2018, and after hearing the song, “Space Cadet,” I was immediately brought in as an instant fan. The thing that stood out the most was that Sleepy Dog didn’t have any social media really, until recently, and considering the state of today’s music industry, it’s fairly mind-boggling to think that an artist could build up to 30,000 monthly listeners on Spotify without promotion behind it. This just tells me that Sleepy Dog’s music is here to stay and that their fan base is very passionate about their music, so if you’re a fan of psychedelic and slacker math rock then Sleepy Dog should find a home in one of your playlists.
