Something For The Weekend: Sisters of Your Sunshine Vapor

Are you looking for something for the weekend, sir? How about a little bit of Sisters of Your Sunshine Vapor?

Sisters of Your Sunshine Vapor are a USA based four piece band who succinctly describe themselves as 'Detroit Psych', (Detroit, Michigan being there home town). They’ve shared the stage with The Black Angels, Black Moth Super Rainbow, Dead Meadow, and Acid Mothers Temple; joined the elite ranks of psych bands at Austin’s Psych Fest for the second time in 2014; toured with Holydrug Couple, Loop, The Warlocks, and The Telescopes, and played SXSW and CBGB Music & Film Festival.

Sisters of Your Sunshine Vapor write and perform moody electrifying psych rock, recorded in their aptly named Space Camp Studios. Sean Morrow (guitar, vocals), Eric Oppitz (bass, organ) and Rick Sawoscinski (drums, percussion) are unified in their pursuit of SOYSV’s vision. Wayne Woodward adds stunning visuals to the band’s live set - anyone who has experienced a Sisters of Your Sunshine Vapor performance has felt the power of the swirling, ever-changing images he shapes. “It’s critical that the live visuals, artwork, and music all work in equilibrium to achieve the specific aesthetic we’re after” says front-man Sean Morrow of the look, sound and feel of his band.

Their new full length album, Desert Brain not only brings this aesthetic to life, but brings to fruition years spent planning the ultimate immersive listening experience. The band are also offering a free download from their bandcamp site - so that's a must. You can also purchase the CD or vinyl copy of the album there. The album, in keeping with Sisters of Your Sunshine Vapor’s tradition of covering all aesthetic bases, is released on clear and splattered blue vinyl.

“I think we were a bit scared to make it,” says Oppitz. “It took us much longer than a typical record of a collection of songs would have taken us.  Not only did we have to write the songs, but we had to compose the transitions between them and then think about how each song fit into the overall concept of the entire record.”
