Sunwatchers
Sunwatchers are a fierce New York-based ensemble that blur the lines between avant-jazz, punk, psychedelia, Ethio-jazz, and desert blues - creating joyous, chaotic, mystical elegies to modern sound. The group – comprised of Peter Kerlin (bass guitar), Jim McHugh (electric guitar/electric Thai phin), Jason Robira (drums), and Jeff Tobias (alto saxophone/keyboard) – features current & former members of NYMPH, Dark Meat, Chris Forsyth’s Solar Motel Band, and Arthur Doyle’s New Quiet Screamers. Their eponymous 2016 album was released on Castle Face Records in 2016, and the band released their sophomore LP entitled "II" on Trouble In Mind Records on February 2nd, 2018. Collaborative and inclusive as a matter of personal politics, Sunwatchers have worked with artists including Eugene Chadbourne, Brigid Dawson (The Oh Sees), David First (Notekillers), Heather McIntosh, Ryan Sawyer, Jonathan Kane, Jessica Pavone, David Harrington, and many others. Sunwatchers also function as the co-organizers of Music Against Mass Incarceration, a biannual music and performance festival aiming to help dismantle the vastly unjust American prison system.


Press:
NPR “II” review
“In four years, they've quickly ascended to a paramount of psychedelic
music, a brew potent with free jazz, gonzo rock, droning Thai folk
melodies, minimalism and mutant funk.“ - Lars Gotrich

The Wire “II” review
“Authentically fearsome… Craft and primitivism are presented as
opposites, but here they complement each other so completely that you
couldn’t have one without the other.” - Bill Meyer

Relix “II” review
“Sunwatchers’ second proper full-length plays like a document of a
band in progress—the current progress status being fire. Beginning at
full bliss, the quartet squonks, squeals and blazes through more than
40 minutes of free-range jams for serious music heads, sometimes in
all-forward attack mode; other times, opening up into more
contemplative spaces.” - Jesse Jarnow

Nest Egg
Nest Egg has already made a name for themselves with their amazing fog-heavy, zoned and honed live show. Warping minds and winning fans with their heady, atmospheric take on progressive, ethereal vibed-out rock music. Psychedelic when the mood turns mellow, but driving when they hit the gas and float the cosmic flux. On Respectable, Nest Egg put their talent upfront, weaving in and out of time and space, with a heavy control of their dynamic. This is music for finding your way through the galaxy, with the intent of never coming back. Fervent energy flows through the instruments to divine output. For all of its movement, repetition, and delay, this is a sound that never loses focus, it never slides back, and it stays in the forefront for the duration demonstrating an immense level of talent at controlling the vibe.
