ELEVATED TRANSMISSIONS PODCAST 015 – BRET CONSTANTINO / SLEEPY SUN


Back in full effect! This week’s ET Podcast is with Sleepy Sun’s frontman, Bret Constantino. I’ve known Bret for a few years from being around SF. I think I actually met him while we were both on mushrooms after a Black Angles show at The Fillmore, ha! Bret’s a great dude and we had an awesome time discussing the strange evolution of technology, getting robbed on tour, the cycles of music consumption and other cool topics. Hope you enjoy it!
