Sun Araw “Last Chants”
I feel pretty good about our scene when I start writing reviews that compare national acts (on the awesome Woodsist label!) to some of our homegrown talent as much as vice versa. Sun Araw is a new buzz band that sounds a little like the acts bouncing around the Modern Radio and Moon Glyph record labels that are killing it in MPLS/St. Paul right now. Sounding like a more electronic Daughters of the Sun (or DoTS side project Camden), Sun Araw create the kind of soundscapes that are very much in vogue right now. If you have eight minutes of time to spare, throw on some headphones and get ready to wander down the rabbit hole, this noisy project is nothing if it isn’t wild and experimental.
