Sunwatchers’ latest gradually slides from its tender opening melodies, slowly ratcheting up into a ferocious intensity, and then bows out with an absolute showstopper of a 20min closing track - ph-bloody-woar.

new york quartet sunwatchers‘ fourth album arrives in a flurry of notes with the buzzing hum of “sunwatchers vs. tooth decay”; the title referencing a 1976 album featuring athlete and activist muhammad ali. a cheeky nod to be sure, but laced with the utmost reverence. this attitude sums up sunwatchers’ aesthetic in a nutshell; the acknowledgement that the things in life we should take seriously are better faced and understood when disarmed by a wink or nudge. the band may cloak their fiery activism in a jester ’s outfit, but it does nothing to dull the force of their attack. FFO: Thee Oh Sees, Charles Mingus, Miles Davis, Chris Forsyth.

oh yeah?
