Psychedelic roots rock outfit Sleepy Gaucho performed a live rendition of the Dead's “Friend of the Devil” for their recently released Hear Here Presents session. The band's mellow twang blends seamlessly with the classic Garcia/Hunter composition.
Sleepy Gaucho's discerning brand of Panamerican-influenced folk music floats somewhat aimlessly in a realm of it’s own. Born in Wisconsin while also growing up some time in Argentina, the young multi-instrumentalist’s music can at times be melancholic, at others ethereal, but always agreeable. His seven track debut record 'Another Time', while initially recorded in Madison, WI, was eventually finished after the songwriter happened to find himself drifting around an East London neighborhood for a few months.
