Sun Parade Album Release w/ The Lawsuits, Chris Kasper
Chris Marlon Jennings grew up in Northampton, Massachusetts, busking on the streets. He met Jeff Lewis when they were high schoolers on summer vacation at a tribal gathering of old friends and families in Maine. Lewis, a mandolin player and islander, was due at Berklee College of Music on scholarship. After a semester in Boston, he moved to Western Mass to work with Jennings. That collaboration is the core of Sun Parade.
Over time Jennings and Lewis built the five-piece that is Sun Parade, with Karl Helander on drums, percussion, harmonies and ambient barking. [Helander is a powerhouse ideas force the riffing at the end of Tear and the astral vocal descents in Braindrain were a couple of his contributions to the album.] Max Wareham (bass) and Eli Salus-Kleiner (keyboard) joined Sun Parade after Shuggy Mtn Breakdown was recorded.
Sun Parade's personal obsessions and projects range from British folk ballads to Motown; collectively their music is most influenced by the mutineers pantheon The Clash, Beastie Boys, Dr. Dog, Nirvana, The Beatles.
For years, Philadelphia's The Lawsuits have been known for a sound that cannot be pigeonholed into one genre. There is something to be said about a band that has been creating music together as long as The Lawsuits have. With that longevity comes a sort of comfort and understanding for both themselves, and the listener. "Moon Son", the band's second full length release, and Randm Records debut, showcases years of blending each other's influences and sounds to create something wholly their own. They have spent their music careers up to this point dipping their toes in multiple sounds and styles to create this very identity. With a nostalgic nod to the greats of the past and a dash of modern productions and self-awareness, laced with sweeping harmonies: this is The Lawsuits.
