To deal with having to spend my Summer in a really shitty place I’m going to just listen to music that makes me feel like I’m somewhere else. I’m not sure if I’d be as driven to leave if I didn’t really detest where I am. Detest sounds stronger than hate, right? Cool. I’m sticking with detest. So, I’ll keep listening to music that makes me feel like I am somewhere else until I get out. This is honestly like being in prison. SEND HELP NOW.
Sun Kin are another West Coast band that are just bloody brilliant. They come from Berkeley (CA) and are about to put their debut single out. The single is produced by a chap I think is awesome, Oliver Ignatius (he’s in Ghost Pal, you should get to know.) And much like Ghost Pal’s music, Sun Kin have that massive sound to their music. It feels homely. Much like Edward Sharpe And The Magnetic Zeros. There’s such a community feel to their music, it just feels like one big party. Other bands that are like this vary from Broken Social Scene to Sons Of An Illustrious Father. They make you feel part of the music, and as a music lover (or obsessive) this ia big thing for me.
Although they make you think there’s about 50 of them in the band; there’s only two. Kabir Kumar and Patrick James.
The single, Rust is beautiful. As is Branches Out, the b-side. For those who know they are going to have a really shit Summer- this one is for you kids!
“Have I lost my track again? Will I run the train into the wall, will I locomote until I’m dead? I’ve been acting like a child, so confused about the zest for life that I do not want.” (Branches Out.)
You can get the single from their bandcamp page : http://sunraykin.bandcamp.com/album/rust
Enjoy, play loudly, sing along. And leave wherever you are.
