Song o’ the Week: Polysonic Joy’s “Sudden Sun”

Monday, September 15th, 2014

Story and video by Joel Patterson

Some songs are just downright peculiar. Where they’ve come from, what they mean, why they mesmerize us – all questions destined to linger in the air without answers. As opposed to what you might call “storytelling” songs with narratives and recognizable characters and events torn from today’s headlines or torn from the musings of an artist, these mystical songs are more like dreams: stream of consciousness impressions and references that skirt any explanation, and yet haunting and revelatory all the same. Their power lies in their obscurity and suggestiveness.

You can catch Polysonic Joy in action at 8pm Friday (September 19) at the Gypsy Joynt Cafe in Great Barrington.

The title song from Sean Rowe’s upcoming album, slated for release on September 9 by Anti- Records. Maybe you heard him sing it at his Troy Savings Bank Music Hall concert back in April, but it sounds even better and bouncier fleshed out with piano, percussion and some horns, too…

You can catch Rowe playing live in the spotlight once again on Saturday (July 5) at BSP Lounge in Kingston, where he opens the show for Justin Townes Earle. The show begins at 7pm, and tickets are $20 in advance; $25 at the door.
