Folktale Winery & KRML Radio are excited to present SUR Live in the Vines!
SUR came to life during a nomadic journey through some of California’s most wild spaces. Frustrated by the confines of Los Angeles, Monterey-bred musician/producer Zack Arnett (formally from Fire in the Hamptons) built a makeshift studio in the back of an RV and set out on a two-month-long journey. While out on the road, Arnett began creating a sound both gritty and melodic, nuanced and volatile, reflective and deeply life-affirming.
For Arnett—who’s also a visual artist, poet, and self-described American medicinal farmer—the music of SUR arose from an entirely uncalculated burst of creativity. With the release of Savage Beast, Arnett hopes that his own fascination with the natural world might awaken a similar sensitivity in others. “I think there’s a real need for us as a civilization to get back to appreciating the beauty and the simplicity of nature, instead of just being so desensitized and having our heads buried in our phones all the time,” he says.
Opening the evening is local band American Trashbird. An amalgamation of the American soundscape; casually blending synth and folk, blues and pop, jam and roots into Monterey Bird Rock, this 5 piece band formed two years ago and have since played numerous shows in the Monterey area, including the annual Halloween Trashbash. American Trashbird is also preparing to release their first EP, Treetops, due out by April 2018.
