Drawing on influences like Talking Heads, David Bowie and Nat King Cole, California-based indie-music duo, SUNMONKS, have “…developed a sound that combines lilting melodies, hypnotic rhythms, and bits of musical styles from all over the globe…” (EntertainmentWeekly.com). They’ve been described as “…propulsive…extremely rhythmic and hypnotic…” (Overblown.com), and have “…an insatiable appetite for all genres…earnest lyrics, instrumental and rhythmic complexity, impeccable harmonies and a swirl of influences…” (Submerge Magazine).
California natives, Alexandra Steele and Geoffrey C.K. formed SUNMONKS in 2013, and recently released their first full-length album, “Two Play”, available everywhere now! The album was recorded and produced by John Baccigaluppi of Tape Op Magazine at the Panoramic House Studio in Marin, CA.
Geoffrey was working as a bassist for Sea of Bees (CA) in 2013 when he and Alexandra began performing original material at private parties. They were urged to begin performing these songs in public by fellow musicians and friends, and SUNMONKS was born. After show-goers and fans began asking for recordings of their material, they released their first EP, In a Desert of Plenty, through Crossbill Records in 2014.
Geoffrey and Alexandra both have very eclectic taste in music, and write and produce music using a wide tool-set of genres and approaches. Catch them on tour summer 2018!
Ancient Elk is a organic psychedelic rock band from Denver, CO. The most interesting quality of the band is that each member is a songwriter, bringing in a pool of sounds. Ancient Elk consists of members of Wild High, Fingers of the Sun, Birds of a Feather, and Grease Pony. They have played alongside acts as Ian Cooke, Crooks on Tape (featuring members of Caribou),Incan Abraham, and Tasseomancy (members of Austra). The band is apart of the Moon Magnet Collective, a community of strong collaborative musicians in Denver, who will also have their own stage this year at UMS!
Serpentfoot is a three-piece psychedelic garage rock band from Fort Collins, CO. Formed in early 2015 by Jordan Twiggs and Michael Ross in an effort to revive some of the music that had been scrapped by an earlier music project. They quickly brought in Philip Shellabarger to fill out the three piece that exists today. While the initial influences included Ty Segall, Thee Oh Sees, Bass Drum of Death, and other similar jangly garage and surf rock, the band has grown to incorporate heavier psychedelic aspects.
