Sun Parade with Trabants
Sun Parade formed in Northampton, Massachusetts, where kids skinny dip in the Mill River and smoke on the tobacco farms on the flood plains. The music scene here is legendary. Even now, touring venues and festivals across the U.S., the Sun Parade lads are most satisfied when their music conjures a Route 9 basement show somewhere along the fold of the map that delivered Dinosaur Jr. and The Pixies a cellar in which everyone is sweaty and dancing and in love or something like it, and by 3 a.m. the rhythm section is shaking the house and you cant tell the band from the crowd.
Sun Parade is Chris Marlon Jennings, raccoon-teur, and Jeff Lewis, Mainer, both on guitar and vocals; Karl Helander on drums, vocals, and ambient barking; Max Wareham on bass and astral physics; and Eli Salus-Kleiner, newly at the keys. The bands personal obsessions and projects range from British folk ballads to Motown; collectively their music is most influenced by the mutineers pantheon Dr. Dog, The Clash, Beastie Boys, Nirvana, The Beatles.
Formed by guitarist/songwriter Eric Penna in Boston, MA, Trabants features a rotating line-up of musicians playing a blend of psychedelic and surf music inspired by obscure instrumentals and library music records from around the world. The rotating lineup was initially a necessity since many members played full time in busy touring acts. Trabants' first first public appearances were at the Plough and Stars where the band played many epic all-night shows snowballing into their first full length, "Highwire Surfing" which garnered an Independent Music Award nomination for best instrumental album alongside placement on the show "Becoming" featuring Johnny Knoxville.
After some touring and opening slots for legends such as Dick Dale (documented on the band's live album, "An Evening with Trabants Live at New Alliance") Penna relocated to Los Angeles to pursue a career in film and television music where he wrote and recorded the band's second album, "Cinematic". With a new homebase, Trabants maintained its rotating line-up to utilise a new much deeper pool of talent and maintain the propulsive, ever-changing freshness to different performances.
In 2015, Trabants released FREAKOUT on L.A.'s Lolipop Records melding the fuzztone vibes of the Sunset strip's rich Psychedelic/Garage history with it's more traditional surf sounds. Following that release they appropriately played the epic Los Angeles acid test all-nighters at the Liquid lightshow-drenched Blindspot Project in Boyle Heights and shared bills with other garage legends such as Tav Falcos Panther Burns, Charlie Megira, The Sloths, Yonatan Gat, The Creation Factory and more.
