This edition of Secondhand Sunday features a band that I sort of forgot about, The Sleepy Jackson. The video for ‘Vampire Racecourse’ really reminds me of my mid college years. I listened to a lot of The Sleepy Jackson on the way to class. It just felt right. Of course now, singer Luke Steele is in indie rock outfit, Empire of the Sun which has pretty much surpassed The Sleepy Jackson in terms of popularity. Both bands are very different, but are nonetheless incredible.
Watch The Sleepy Jackson’s ‘Vampire Racecourse’ from their 2003 album, ‘Lovers’.
