Bad Weather California is four West Coast weirdos making feel-good true-energy rock music out in the desert mountains—a punk band for the new millennium. Raised on the alt. music they discovered in Thrasher magazine and gas-powered generator shows in the small town where they grew up, the quartet spent the past seven years playing, touring and searching for those same feelings and sounds; looking for them on their dusty old four-tracks or threatening to just plain fall apart right there at one of their legendary Denver house shows. Guitarist / vocalist Chris Adolf explains, “As a kid, I used to have this intense, nervous feeling when I would watch punk bands play. Like anything might go down. Like it was unstable. Iʼm looking for that again. Striving for it.” Sunkissed is the group’s second full-length album and the first for Akron / Family’s new Family Tree Records imprint. It was recorded in Detroit at the home studio of engineer Chris Koltay and produced by Akron / Family singer and guitarist Seth Olinsky. Like a ’65 Impala convertible cruising down a back road while the spirit of Juju master King Sunny Ade shines in the rearview mirror, like the Minutemen, Meat Puppets and Flaming Lips shaking hands with your parentsʼ classic rock record collection, Sunkissed is the soundtrack to a summer party thatʼs always happening around the corner.
