Sunwatchers - Nose Beers

"Sunwatchers stand in solidarity with the dispossessed, impoverished and embattled people of the world." That's a quote from the cover of the band's second album, the 2018 release II, and it's a great sentiment. That'll only get you so far though, I mean George Michael had fucking great praxis and his music was still everything that was wrong with pop. Sorry George, I'm sure you would have been gutted to hear that from a critic of my stature.

Sunwatchers though, they're on another level. When they're not psychedelic they're noise rock, and when they're not noise rock they're liberation theory free jazz warriors. And all the time they are filled with the power of punk. What is the power of punk? Well, it's a curious thing. It makes one man weep, and another man sing. It can change a robber baron into an ascetic monk. It's more than music, that's the power of punk.

Nose Beers is the opener from II and it's Sunwatchers in their most distilled and powerful form. It sounds like Amps For Christ meeting 75 Dollar Bill meeting Albert Ayler. 2 minutes of intense delight.
