Experimental/cosmic ensemble Sungod is made up of Michael Sharp and Braden Balentine, recording out of their shared home studio with a rotating cast of like-minded outsider musicians. Incorporating an ever-broadening inventory of influences, the band’s methodical arrangements and layers of meditative repetition hearken back to 70’s Krautrock, which serves as a solid foundation for further ventures into both burgeoning and antiquated realms. Polyrhythmic drums, delay driven guitar riffs and sequenced synth patterns propel much of Sungod's procession forward while sitting in perfect harmony with acoustic guitars and beautiful flute melodies. Touching on the modern and the classic, Sungod's sound is truly timeless.
