Carlos Nino & Jesse Peterson (who also collaborated on the High With A Little Help From LP) deliver and outstanding folk album of gorgeous songs and instrumentals. Mainly acoustic, barefoot and bearded - a repeat after repeat listening masterpiece that massages you softly where it matters. A Beautiful TIP!Turn On The Sunlight is the very special new duet project
by composer, multi-instrumentalist Jesse Peterson, and
producer, visionary Carlos Niño (Build An Ark, Dublab.com,
The Life Force Trio, The Sound Of L.A., Spaceways Radio,
Suite For Ma Dukes . . .) The two collaborated on the much
acclaimed Carlos Niño & Friends record HIGH WITH A LITTLE HELP FROM (Kindred Spirits 2009,) delivered a stellar ambient remix of Build An Ark on the DAWN REMIXES 12" (Kindred Spirits 2009,) and most recently joined forces for Carlos Niño's OCEAN SWIM MIX (Art Union Japan 2010.) With their self titled debut full-length, Turn On The Sunlight, Peterson and Niño have been able to present a focused set of their work together. Comprised of 12 new original songs, recorded over the last 2 years in both New York and Los Angeles, spanning the realms of folk, experimental, guitar soli, soulful California groove, and psychedelia, Turn On The Sunlight is an explorative journey through sound, feeling and dimension. Unlike any other project that Niño has been involved in, Turn On The Sunlight, and the profound instrumental talents of Peterson, are sure to garner enthusiastic support. The two sing and play a variety of instruments on this expansive, heartfelt release, that, without making too grandiose a comparison, could be described as a dream state where John Fahey and Brian Eno make music about the ocean, the stars and LOVE. Hope you enjoy!
