POCAHAUNTED formed in 2006. Since then the Eagle Rock sisterhood have blazed a fast path through the DIY / psych underground, evolving as quickly as their eBay-coveted cassettes and LPs sell out.
Comprised of Not Not Fun Records art-designer Amanda Brown on vocals / dancing, Sun Araw main-man Cameron Stallones on organ, Diva Dompe on bass / vocals, NNF co-captain Britt Brown on guitar, and LA staple Ged Gengras on drums, Pocahaunted's whirlwind voodoo live performances range from hypnotizing 4AD / Cocteau Twins cloudbanks to thundering afro-punk freak-outs.
They've played with everyone from [b:2c8c074575]Sonic Youth to MV & EE to Yellow Swans to Ponytail to Religious Knives to Vivian Girls[/b:2c8c074575], and toured both the West and East coast to packed art galleries, warehouse parties, and DIY venues. Their discography runs deep, with full-length albums on underground luminary labels like [b:2c8c074575]Weird Forest, Arbor, Woodsist, Teenage Teardrops, Troubleman Unlimited, Not Not Fun and Digitalis[/b:2c8c074575], garnering glowing press in dozens of publications (both print and digital) such as URB Magazine, LA Record (they were the cover story), Tiny Mix Tapes and The Wire. They are currently recording a brand new full-length album to be released in the autumn. This is their first overseas tour ever. The future is bright, and soon to be haunted.

Initially launched solely as a recording project for [b:2c8c074575]Magic Lantern[/b:2c8c074575] guitarist Cameron Stallones, quickly transformed into a stunning live act as well, bolstered by a string of rapturously received LPs - 'Beach Head' on [b:2c8c074575]Not Not Fun[/b:2c8c074575] and 'Boat Trip' on [b:2c8c074575]Woodsist[/b:2c8c074575]. Drawing equally upon 70s kraut-psych rock, Spacemen 3-style drug blues and woozy tropical world music, Sun Araw's universe is a rapidly expanding one. Cameron's electric gospel landed him on a number of prominent music review "Best Of 2008" lists, and the trend seems to only be beginning. A brand new full-length CD / LP 'Heavy Deeds' is out this summer

Thanks for that, interesting. Really looking forward to this. NNF has done too much good stuff - Loosers, Raccoo-oo-oon, Heavy Winged, Ex-Cocaine, and a ton of other stuff. Hoping there's some tasty merch available on the night, NNF's artwork's always good. COLOUR ME EXCITED :-D
