SUNWATCHERS

WORLD/JAZZ/PSYCHÉ

Le combo instrumental de Brooklyn/Queens bombarde de souffles absorbants et obliques, de riffs poreux et cosmopolites, au carrefour effréné du punk, du jazz et du psych. Des mouvements oniriques, cinétiques qui deviennent autres et ailleurs, qui ouvrent des passerelles du cosmos jusqu'à travers soi-même et vers le monde encore, pour une exultation suée plus grande que la somme des parties. Leur dernier album, Sunwatchers, est paru sous l'estimé label Castle Face de John Dwyer de Thee Oh Sees.

These songs map out great pyramids and deep buried labyrinths. They are massive. They are leviathans.
— John Dwyer, Thee Oh Sees/Castle Face Records

ALBUM

PRESSE

Sunwatchers are nothing if not unusual. Relying heavily on saxophones, guitars and keys, this album mashes avant-jazz and punk tendencies where droning, repetition and improv sensibilities are simultaneously perplexing and engaging. Noisey, meticulous and beautifully chaotic (...)
— NEW NOISE MAGAZINE
But do not think that Sunwatchers is just another neo-kraut band, jamming endlessly on the same droning, repeated patterns and simple, danceable drumbeats. They are a leaf on one of the more cerebral branches of that family tree, hearkening back more to Amon Duul II than modernists like Wooden Shjips.
— POST-TRASH
Remember that “mindblowing psychedelia from Thailand” YouTube video from five years ago, with the pan-generational band (Khun Narin), a hodgepodge of percussion, and a dude wailing on an electric, double-necked stringed instrument called a phin? It’s still a trip to watch. Now imagine those droning Thai folk melodies getting blasted through a motorik rhythm section and blown out by a saxophone — that’s the cosmic modus operandi of Sunwatchers.
