Northern California’s psych-rock outfit Sleepy Sun return with their fourth record, Maui Tears, on January 28th. I’ve been fortunate enough to catch them live a couple times and both times they’ve pretty much blown me away. From the sounds of this record, Maui Tears might be the closest the band has gotten to capturing that same live energy in the studio.

Lucky for us they’ve pressed 300 of the record on colored wax, with another 1,200 on standard black. But you’re a Sly Vinyl reader, so forget the black version: you want the colored version, am I right?

Also, for all you design loving color nerds (like me), the label was nice enough to provide the exact Pantone colors for the colored version, so get out your Pantone books and enjoy:

Record #1 – Turquoise (pantone 338 C)
Record #2 – Burgundy (pantone 7621 C)
