Sun Seeker has drawn applause for their unhurried breed of Cosmic American Music and with BIDDEFORD (Third Man Records), their long awaited debut EP, the Nashville-based band more than affirm their promise. The EP – which follows Sun Seeker's widely acclaimed Third Man debut single, 2016s Georgia Dust b/w No One Knows (TMR322) – sees Alex Benick (guitar, vocals), Asher Horton (bass guitar, vocals), and Ben Parks (drums, vocals) exploring nostalgia, melancholy, and emotional turmoil via laidback psychedelia pollinated with tight harmonies,
classic folk songcraft, and country rock spirit, an ageless approach that is simultaneously archetypal and now utterly their own. Songs like With Nothing (But Our Last Words) and the yearning Won't Keep Me Up At Night meld Benick's candid lyricism and stark melodies with creative arrangement and production technique, fashioning a sonic world to match their interior emotional scope.

The "bunch of musical friends" at the core of Sun Seeker have been collaborating in some sense since eighth grade. The trio formed a loose collective of combos, playing together in eachother's bands, with Sun Seeker officially convening in January 2013. The band became fast favorites on the Nashville scene, earning word of mouth and a fervent fan following via an electric live presence and a striking collection of songs. Sun Seeker will celebrate BIDDEFORD with intense national touring, not dissimilar to the approach they took in building a hometown following. The
band plan to use the time between runs to record their now eagerly anticipated debut album, still determined to keep venturing forward, developing and expanding the distinctive parameters of their own intrepid sound and vision.

A Chicago native, Matt Smith started Thompson Springs as an outlet for songs he collected while playing in the Madison-based group, The Sharrows. The group’s new EP, “Fond Regards (2017),” features Pat Sansone of Wilco and frequent collaborator Rob Laakso of Kurt Vile and the Violators. Jacob Bicknase (drums), and Andy Goitia (bass) round out the project.
