Sun Araw - Release

For years now, Sun Araw has been colonising the outer fringes of music with stylistic abandon. The steady horse clop of cod westerns, the unexpected thuds of neo-dub, the brightly coloured layering of exotica, the DIY gamelan or just the wilful confusion of his maximalist psychedelia: they're all key aspects of the overall sound. Here's his take on Dylan's I Shall Be Released, a gospel-influenced slow burner. On the surface Cameron Stallones stays faithful to the original, but the turbulent jitter of unexpected rhythmic emphasis is ever present. Taken from the album The Saddle of the Increate (2017) this is confounding, but still beautiful.
