“Hard to pin down, harder to hold onto; bent circuit board
snake charmers unfurl across hexagonal grids. A seemingly
familiar sound, but then you realize you have your ear
pressed against a reflection.
“Sunwatchers are a distorted prism to so many past
greats: reminiscent of Ethiopiques, John Handy Band,
Terry Riley, Art Ensemble meets Laddio Bolocko.
Forever-swirling saxophone blended belly-to-belly with
elastic guitar and tinfoil-thin phin (a Thai instrument not
unlike an electrified tenor guitar or sitar); a whirlpool of
repetitious interpretations; militaristic marches ascend into
meditations. These songs map out great pyramids and deep,
buried labyrinths; they are massive, they are leviathans.
“The band is comprised of NYC improv heavy hitters—
Jim McHugh (guitar, electric phin), Peter Kerlin
(bass), Jeff Tobias (alto sax), Cory Bracken (vibes,
percussion), Jason Robira (drums)—and sitting in are
Dave Harrington (guitar, synth), Ben Greenberg (guitar),
Dave Kadden (keyboard), Jonah Rapino (fiddle). Notable
previous projects include Dark Meat, Arthur Doyle’s New
Quiet Screamers, NYMPH and Chris Forsyth’s Solar Motel
Band. Amazing cover painting of Handsome Jimmy Valiant
by artist Scott Lenhardt—a strange but somehow sensible
match made in heaven.
“Dream machinery, just plain far out. Look for traces of
this one in your brain jelly afterwards.” —John Dwyer
