Sunwatchers – “Greeneyed Pigmen (Get The Blade)”

There’s no better moment in time than for a band like Sunwatchers to exist than at the apex of culture and confusion that is 2019. The band’s sociopolitical leanings and egalitarian ethics welded to a psych-punk soul are only more confounded by the band’s dual love for free jazz tumult. Without an ounce of reservation they rain down fire on an audience that needs a good shot in the ribs every now and then to stay on task, because if Sunwatchers are anything, it’s hard to ignore. The second offering from their upcoming Illegal Moves barrels out of the gate with a getaway gusto, scattering scraps of Hawkwind LPs along the roadside and fueling the tank on the fumes of Mnehiro Narita and Kawabata Mokoto guitar solos. “Greeneyed Pigmen (Get The Blade)” is as cutting as anything the band have rattling around their catalog, and as usual the lightning strike of Jeff Tobias’ sax finishes the listener with precision panache. Gonna want to pick this one up in all its furious glory when it drops on Feb. 22nd.

RSTB Best of 2017 (so far)

So, as usual, here are the albums that have spent most time on the turntable here. Presented in alphabetical order, its a pretty good roundup with six more months left on the clock.

Timmy’s Organism – “Wolfman Running”

Detroit’s favorite source of psychic damage is back in action. Following their outing on Third Man they’re readying an album for local label Lo & Behold. The band’s had a couple of 7″s in the run up and they gather a few of those tracks along with plenty of unheard slime on this new collection of Michigan’s best scuzz n’ fuzz. “Wolfman Running” pins itself to some Sabbath-sized riffs with Timmy Vulgar shaking the voodoo down over the top, proselytizing the dark arts and generally doing his best to keep things unhinged. Its always good to keep tabs on Vulgar, whether its the Organism or Human Eye, there’s usually rank weirdness to be had. Eating Colors envelops the world on August 29th.
