Sun Parade w/ Today Junior
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 will be on the road through 2017, packing a full-length rock release produced in Brooklyn by Ian Hersey of Rubblebucket. The band has supported Lake Street Dive, Dr. Dog, Born Ruffians, and And The Kids. National Public Radio picked Hearts Out the title track of the bands EP for Songs We Love, and wrote that Sun Parade is crafting the kinds of traditional guitar-pop songs that people might still be singing 50 years down the road.
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.
Chris Jennings and Jeff Lewis are longtime collaborators. Jennings (Cheer Up) writes by and large in the language of existential howl, wherein life, love and the pursuit of happiness are a highway pile-up with the distinct possibility of dancing. Lewis (Brain Drain) is lately spinning ethereal, psychedelic glowing pop benevolence, songs sung into an old Fostex and sent out into the world in strands of metaphysic werewolves and sunshine. The dichotomy between the writers builds a sort of outliers love fest, a condition Oscar Wilde once described as living in the gutter with stardust falling on us.
Today Junior is a Boston based indie-rock trio known for having wild and energetic live performances. With the creative wisdom of brothers Mike and Harry O'Toole, alongside Anthony Ambrose, Today Junior presents upbeat and edgy music that is instantly catchy, but also carries its own stylistic charm. With the release of their latest EP "Leaving Easy, the band offers an addictive musical blend that has just been gaining steam the last few years, and shows no signs of slowing down whatsoever.
