ANCIENT ROMANS is the fifth full-length album from SUN ARAW
Primal Splendour, who sends out innumerable rays, not perceptible by the senses, but collectively thinkable
Heartfelt and marbled, this album is documentation of the slow exit (the triumphal entry): moving the camera back 8 stages along the circumference of the circle to the point where the obverse is reverse, in order to celebrate the building of an edifice and then walk away from it in wisdom, gaining freedom from it.
ANCIENT ROMANS will be available as a 2xLP on white vinyl in a gatefold jacket with an accompanying art book, as well as on CD.
available on SUN ARK RECORDS through Drag City, August 23rd

SUN ARK CASSETTES! INFO AND CLIPS IN THE SHOP
You might remember Matthew Lessner from IN ORBIT. He is a good friend and a man of many talents, one of which has borne fruit in the completion of a feature film premiering at SUNDANCE in a few weeks. He asked me to record a cover for the film, and so here is a cover of Neil Young's "Thrasher."
The legendary invite-only parties at SUN ARK STUDIOS had reached a sort of frenzied climax in late summer of 2010, steamy and yet ambiguous police actions, multiple lenticular object sightings, and spontaneous dance-floor teleportations all were pointed at some sort of budding vortex, a sinister portal that was going to have to be danced through. Everything was coming up fungal, spiral filaments wrapping around wrists and ankles, yanking some chains. For the 3am set, MATTHEWDAVID joined SUN ARAW onstage for what would be the moment of germination: SUN ARAW passing retrieved melodic objects while MD dilated, distended, folded, and then flung them through the gateway. After listening from the control room with eyes closed, I wandered out onto the dancefloor to take stock: the partygoers as I remembered them had vanished, and the entities that were moving to these grooves were tough to identify, multiplying rapidly in fractal-like patterns and then slipping sideways into shadow. I caught a cab and got out of there. I have no idea who finished the recording.
