A few weeks ago, one of my favorite artists making music right now made a tour stop in Baltimore at the Ottobar. Sun Araw came to town from California, and was backed with a band marking the first tour of The Sun Araw Band. A new LP is due out on Cameron Stallones' own Sun Ark Records, and the show featured a preview of the new tracks.
Cameron and crew sounded huge on the booming system at the Ottobar, having only seen him perform once before at a small bar in Texas. The set was one of my favorite so far this year, a psychedelic whirlwind of new age dub and deconstructed jams that seemed to go on into eternity. The night was also blessed by a heavy psych set from Run DMT.
