Sun Seeker has drawn applause for their unhurried breed of Cosmic American Music and with BIDDEFORD (Third Man Records), their long awaited debut EP, the Nashville-based band more than affirm their promise. The EP – which follows Sun Seekers widely acclaimed Third Man debut single, 2016s Georgia Dust b/w No One Knows (TMR322) – sees Alex Benick (guitar, vocals), Asher Horton (bass guitar, vocals), and Ben Parks (drums, vocals) exploring nostalgia, melancholy, and emotional turmoil via laidback psychedelia pollinated with tight harmonies, classic folk songcraft, and country rock spirit, an ageless approach that is simultaneously archetypal and now utterly their own. Songs like With Nothing (But Our Last Words) and the yearning Wont Keep Me Up At Night meld Benicks candid lyricism and stark melodies with creative arrangement and production technique, fashioning a sonic world to match their interior emotional scope. The bunch of musical friends at the core of Sun Seeker have been collaborating in some sense since eighth grade. The trio formed a loose collective of combos, playing together in each others bands, with Sun Seeker officially convening in January 2013. The band became fast favorites on the Nashville scene, earning word of mouth and a fervent fan following via an electric live presence and a striking collection of songs. Sun Seeker will celebrate BIDDEFORD with intense national touring, not dissimilar to the approach they took in building a hometown following. The band plan to use the time between runs to record their now eagerly anticipated debut album, still determined to keep venturing forward, developing and expanding the distinctive parameters of their own intrepid sound and vision.
The Kinky Fingers
In what has been a blur of Mexican boarder towns, unmentionable surf havens, barbecued "Bible Belt" ribs, a mid winter spent on the great white wave, and a wet hot American summer vacation in a sticky New York, The Kinky Fingers continue onward while 'WORST OF' (a compilation of EP's past and present) has been the soundtrack to the those first years. The missed opportunity and burning bridges years, the broken down on I80 and stranded in Brooklyn years, the I have no clue what we're doing but we're doing it, the worst years...or were they the best?
"The Kinky Fingers might not reside anywhere near the coast, but their beachy album, Worst Of, leads us to believe otherwise. The Denver locals infuse numerous genres into their Tarantino inspired sound. Tayler Doyle, The Kinky Finger’s frontman, has a unique voice that lends to the group’s authenticity. The band’s ability to draw from multiple musical influences, including Cumbia and outlaw Country, while staying true to their roots keeps 'Worst Of' inspiringly raw."
-Alexandra Graber (Space + Echo)
"The Kinky Fingers have all the grit of Santah and all the smoothness of Vacationer. The Denver three piece layers falsetto harmonies over reverb kissed guitar lines and punchy drums to create a sound that takes equally from heavy psych and saccharine pop. The Kinky Fingers straddle the line between aesthetics as well as any band might–skating down a meandering jam while crafting hook after hook. If you’re looking for a band that will give you the same feeling The Beatles gave the straight world when they returned from India, look no further than The Kinky Fingers."
-Brian Clifton (Mills Record Company)
