S U N H O P F A T This is the music of resilience. A group of reforming energized by the music of resistance and fuzz. To the collective they all brought their voices. They came packing cases and stories, this outfit brought together by a desire to move bodies and uplift with a song from a place foreign and far. The voices when together swirl and sparkle: a rhythm section churns; horn section pops and murmurs, through it all an unearthing is discovered, a collection of voices that seeps electric honey.
Sun Hop Fat is a dangerous place to lay your feet to rest. The group's reinterpretation of the Swinging Addis period of Ethiopian music is a cauldron of swell and froth that can only be broken by an upheaval of emerging groove. All these voices, provide a soundscape rich enough to plant a garden in. So much sound. So much foundation. So much travel and change. This group is a tempest, ever evolving in members, texture and structure. It started as an idea, a note, a covering of something that was dark and unknown. Now, It is now a scream, a tingling, a possibility to behold.
C A $ H P O N Y Cash Pony is an amalgamation of musicianship and insanity that will no doubt leave the brain drenched with sonic intrigue. Drawing on a variety of musical backgrounds from each of the members, the band moves from technical passages worth scratching your head over to deep, soul-stirring grooves with effortless prowess and reckless abandon. Wielding the power of traditional rock instruments (guitar, bass, drums), Cash Pony also brandishes the unique synthesis of baritone saxophone, electric sitar, and analog synthesizers into a purely cosmic melee. The band has been relentlessly edging into the Bay Area music scene while maintaining a presence in Portland, Seattle and other Northwest destinations. Cash Pony has proven to be a formidable musical contender, fusing the energy and aesthetic of DIY-junk with the academick qualities of progressive jazz, North Indian Classical music, and a matrix of rare influences from around the world. If you're lucky/cursed enough to find yourself at one of their shows, get ready for a night of incendiary fervor and strategic wildness that will clench the teeth, move the booty, and reel the mind.
