Arthur King & The Night Sea
Arthur King & The Night Sea
Arthur King & The Night Sea is an experimental group that defies musical categorization. Floating between Minimalist-Atmospheric, Dub, Free Jazz and Electronic, the project is an ongoing exercise in engaging the known and unknown
inherent in creative expression.

Based in Los Angeles, the band is comprised of highly acclaimed musicians Danny Frankel (Lou Reed, K.D. Lang, Nels Cline, Money Mark), David Ralicke (Beck, Dengue
Fever, John Cale), Kenny Lyon (The Lemonheads, Spain), Peter Walker (Eulogies, Broadheads), Rusty Logsdon (Eels), Shon Sullivan (Elliott Smith,The Rentals, Goldenboy) and Aaron Espinoza (Earlimart, Admiral Radley).

The group's new album “Palmetto” is an atmospheric experience, stuffed with mythology and mysticism. "Mad psychedelia, everywhere from a dark jazz trumpet to an
almost South American ambiance, a Dub Tropicalia steamed in the layers of an LSD jaunt!" (rocknyclive).

RIYL: Tortoise, BadBadNotGood, Brian Eno, Lee “Scratch” Perry, The Budos Band, Miles Davis, Tommy Guerrero, John Hassell, Terry Riley, Secret Circuit, Noveller, Nels Cline, Yussef Kamaal

i record all the time. old stuff, new stuff, covers, and everything else. i record with friends but mostly by myself. recording music is my thing.
Dzang birthed half a decade ago as an outlet for Los Angeles producer Adam Gunther’s more exploratory impulses, beyond the confines of his soundtrack work. Following a pair of self-released LPs (XLO, 2014, and Lotion, 2015), he began amassing a vault of liquid inner space instrumentals, tracing connections between poolside R&B, sun-kissed pop, astral jazz, and blunted dance. For half the tracks he called in a cast of featured collaborators to sing, speak, rap, or reflect, including smoky New York City vocalist DonChristian, Estonian avant-diva Maria Minerva, neo-crooner Maxim Ludwig, and Cali chanteuse Olivia Kaplan. The resultant collection, 3G, coasts blissfully across 14 tracks of weekend West Coast electronic rhythm, alternately soft and summery, downtempo and upscale. Gunther’s touch is heady, hi-fi, and healing. Pacific dreams for specific times. 3G is out July 14th on DzangRecs.
