4Ever Songs: Neil Diamond “Sweet Caroline”

Music by Bergman: Sleepy Gaucho

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.

The latest from Andy Goitia’s dream-pop project Sleepy Gaucho is EP “Sueños que Sobran,” It  is a short collection of bilingual songs in Spanish and English. Conceived and recorded during quarantine, the EP feels like an appropriate escape, with songs centered around a dreamy and hazy nostalgia and embedded with surreal lyrics.
