iTunes Review

Inspired by long slow takes from cameras in filmmaking, Sun Araw’s sixth studio album plays with panoramic, audio soundscapes unfolding before your ears. At over eight-and-a-half minutes long, the opening “Ma Holo” kicks off On Patrol with sleepy tropical funk played at head-nodding tempos and filtered through a humid gauze of lo-fidelity production. The similarly lengthy “Beat Cop” grooves slowly with dub-infused loops under bubbling analog effects and a hypnotic mantra of beats. “Conga Mind” sounds like Neil Young jamming with Lee Perry from the Pacific Ocean floor as nasal-inflected vocals croon over pulsing psychedelic organ drones and a soothing repetition of beats. Although “Deep Cover” gets a bit heavier on the rhythms, it doesn’t stray from Sun Araw’s quasi-formulaic penchant for producing the kind of peripheral ambiance that delivers intricate textures, should the listener choose to hone-in instead of zone-out. Eschewing bass and drums for the low stings on a guitar and a wah-wah pedal, “Dimension Alley” is a watery soundscape of undulating reverb and cosmic noodling. The epic “Holodeck Blues” closes with nearly 17 minutes of inner space rock.

As part of the communal label Not Not Fun, Sun Araw has released a number of well-received and continually groundbreaking full-lengths and singles, the first two of which -- 2008's The Phynx and Beach Head -- were psychedelic interpretations of myriad source materials, and led to the breakthrough...
