Brave Rats Ep by Sunwatchers


Brave Rats Ep

***Amish is pleased to announce a new EP from SUNWATHERS, the band's third Amish-related release. Quick on the heels of the band’s fourth full-length, Oh Yeah? (Trouble in Mind) out April 2020, Brave Rats celebrates Sunwatchers and the EP format, well after the moment of the latter’s extinction. The title track delivers Sunwatchers’ most anthemic pop music to date, while the other five tracks mix the political with the punk, street toughs aligning with the avant-garde. Features covers of Sonny Sharrock's "Blind Willie" and a live version of Alice Coltrane's "Ptah, the El Daoud." One-time pressing of 500 copies housed in die-cut jackets.

***BACK IN STOCK!!! “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
