Sweeney Straddles The Sun is the solo project of Glaswegian multi-instrumentalist Jason Sweeney.
On January 4th 2010 he released his debut album Erect, which has received much critical acclaim despite costing under £100 to record, produce and release.
His musical style and influences are varied and reviewers have found it near impossible to categorize his sound, describing it as "straight up rock & roll", "industrial beat", "a space age fairground" and more succinctly as "a psychedelic sixties' feel overlaid with C86 indie pop lo-fi sensibilities." Comparisons have included The Beta Band, The Flaming Lips and Psapp.
