GARY WILSON
Gary Wilson is an internationally renowned experimental music composer, recording artist, and performer. As a teenager, Wilson studied composition privately with John Cage, and since his 1977 self- released classic You Think You Really Know Me, he has spent a lifetime building a fervent underground audience around the world. Esteemed artists Beck,Tyler the Creator, Ariel Pink, Questlove, Earl Sweatshirt,Peanut Butter Wolf, Foxygen, andDam Funk have all cited Gary Wilson as a source of inspiration. He is the subject of the 2005 documentary, You Think You Really Know Me: The Gary Wilson Story, and is mentioned by name in Beck’s 1996 classic “Where It’s At”.

In the summer of 2013, the Metropolitan Museum of Art included Gary in the exhibition PUNK: Chaos to Couture, and the underground legend has graced the pages of The New York TimesThe New Yorker, and Record Collector Magazine. Wilson’s music has been featured in an episode of Narcos (2015) as well as during the Golden Globes (2017), and his track “You Were Too Good to Be True” appears as a sample on Earl Sweatshirt’s track “Grief”” (2015). In recent years, Wilson has shared the bill at live performances with Todd Rundgren, Ariel Pink, Foxygen, Colin Caulfield (Diiv), Crush, and Black Lips.

Gary Wilson has performed on national TV on both The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and Jimmy Kimmel Live! He continues to diligently compose, record, and release new music, including 2019’s The King of Endicott (Cleopatra Records) and his summer 2019 collaborative album with home recording legend R. Stevie Moore, titled Fake News Trending.

Gary’s latest album, A Beautiful Bliss, is set for release on all formats including CD and vinyl on May 24, 2024. 

sunking
sunking is the collective experimental sights and sounds of Seattle natives Rob Granfelt (aka Bobbyy) & Antoine Martel (aka sous chef). Originally intended as a passive outlet to explore the crossings of avant-garde, hip-hop, jazz, and experimental music, sunking has morphed into a full-fledged project of its own that today is announcing its signing to ANTI- Records.

    "Experimental laboratory for branched fusion sounds”
    — Rolling Stone (Germany)
     
    “This city needs more groups like sunking, who flit among genres such as hip-hop, jazz, and shoegaze rock while messing with the DNAs of each style they address."
    — The Stranger

    “a slice of starlit jazz-funk that proves that sunking cram more into two minutes than most bands can say in a whole album.”
    — Record Collector (UK)
     
    sunking is the collective experimental sights and sounds of Seattle natives Rob Granfelt (aka Bobbyy) & Antoine Martel (aka sous chef). Originally intended as a passive outlet to explore the crossings of avant-garde, hip-hop, jazz, and experimental music, sunking has morphed into a full-fledged project of its own that today is announcing its signing to ANTI- Records.

    Granfelt and Martel are also members of High Pulp, a Seattle jazz act that also recently signed to ANTI-. To celebrate their signing announce today, sunking has released the new track “Parcel” Feat. Teleporter. Listen to it HERE.

    ““Parcel” is a hazy vignette, something based in the experience of nostalgia,” Granfelt explained of the song. “We knew the song had achieved its goal when our good friend Elliot Gitter AKA Teleporter layered lush synth textures as well as the dreamy vocal samples.”

    Sunking released their critically acclaimed self-titled debut album in February 2019 and it received praise from Earshot Jazz who said: “sunking’s self-titled debut exudes an abundance of uncaged creative accomplishment."
