CMJ Artist Spotlight: Sun Blood Stories

High desert rockers Sun Blood Stories continuously entrance audiences with their psychedelic musical journeys. Their newest album, Twilight Midnight Morning, has received much praise for its ambient overlayed textures, hypnotic basslines, haunting vocals, tribal drums, and intense guitar work.

“Sun Blood Stories craft a witchy concoction of brooding drone-rock…[SBS] brings such great musicianship to this record, and it sounds amazing, so go listen to it and support independent artists.”Killing Sasquatch

“Idaho has given birth to possibly one of the best rock bands I have had the pleasure of listening to in a long time, the hypnotic drums followed up by the heavy riffs and pure shriek of the guitar will take you on a lucid journey through the 60′s and 70′s. These guys seriously shred..”Ponsharden Collective

“Later that night, a mesmerizing set of psychedelic noise from Boise’s own Sun Blood Stories brought the Water Cooler close to capacity, with a slew of guest musicians joining in for the band’s finale…they layered their splintering and soulful voices over the spaced-out barrage of noise coming from the band. The result was extraordinary to witness up close, and it’s impossible to imagine anyone in attendance leaving the venue unmoved by the staggering passion that poured off of that cramped stage.”Portland Mercury (during Treefort Music Fest)
