It’s good to hear Cameron Stallones back in the sweaty arms of mutant dub. The latest Sun Araw opus landed in March and in a glut year of releases kinda snuck out quietly. The video for “Orthrus” thrusts some light back on the release with a spare treatment that features dance sensation Mr. Shapes riding the groove. The song is a standout on the album, marrying a chugging dub shuffle to future funk keys and mournful slides along the strings. As abstract as Sun Araw has been in the past few years, this just hits right in the heart of what always endeared the band to me in the first place. It’s psych, drenched in balmy beat and dug out of the tape hiss trenches that sprung the band all those years ago. If you missed out, check in now.
