Sunbathe is brought to you by Maggie Morris (the brilliant mind behind household favorites such as Genders and Youth) and has been fortified with the stylings of trusted industry mainstays Pieter Hilton and Shannon Steele (of Typhoon) and Jenny Logan (Deathlist, Summer Cannibals); all manufactured in the state-of-the-art laboratory of Destination Universe.
Formed by members of some of Denver’s most respected bands, Pale Sun has an enviable pedigree: guitarist/vocalist Jeff Suthers from Bright Channel, Orbiteer and Moonspeed, drummer Kit Peltzel from Space Team Electra, Snake Rattle Rattle Snake and Mr. Pacman, and the return of John Rasmussen on Bass of Andy Monley & the high horses, Jocko homo, and formerly of Joshua Novak and Peter, Paul and Gary.
Bear and the Beasts (Solo)
Bear and the Beasts are a rowdy 6-piece soul-tinged Americana band from Denver that blends elements of folk, jazz, and roots into a cosmic sound that can explode like a quasar or float like a Tesla Roadster through space. With a white-knuckled, bone-rattling intensity and a compositional command that is downright orchestral, they tackle themes such as social justice, death, and millennial malaise with a paradoxical sense of gravitas and irreverence. Backed with devastatingly powerful songwriting, delicately crafted vocal harmonies, and lush, innovative horn arrangements, Bear and the Beasts have created a powerful tour de force that can turn the diviest bar into a tent revival.
They are currently recording their debut full-length, "The American", set to be released in 2018.
