Cameron Stallones began his musical career as a founding member of the experimental psychedelic rock collective Magic Lantern, before stepping out as SUN ARAW (USA). Since 2007, four full-length LPs, three EPs, and five cassettes have walked the mind-planes from psychedelic drone to melted afrobeat, and from warped dub to minimal composition. These releases were put out by unbelievably hip labels including Not Not Fun and Sun Ark, and were praised in Wire Magazine, The New Yorker, The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, Uncut Magazine, Mojo, Pitchfork and beyond. Sun Araw has performed in the US, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand with hundreds of artists, including luminaries like Christian Fennesz and Konono No. 1. Sometimes compared to Animal Collective, Sun Araw's music is trippy, organic and deeply psychedelic, drawing on inspiration from afrobeat, west coast '60s psych, Neil Young and krautrock. But it's more than mere imitation: present is a real contemporary sense of inspiration, which is why Sun Araw's music is heads and shoulders above the pack.
