10 Songs Sunflower Bean Listens to on Tour

2016 has been a huge year for Sunflower Bean. Bursting out with the incredible Human Ceremony this year, the band has become a must see seemingly overnight. With their mixture of classic sounds with a psychedelic touch, they’ve made something that should sound familiar completely unique. As any band that’s suddenly bursting to a new level, they’ve been touring non-stop. We asked the band for a list of tracks that they listen to in the van and they delivered a list of tracks that perfectly encapsulate their sound and appeal. Check out the playlist below and be sure to grab tickets when they come to your town.

Playlist

Parquet Courts- Dust

Love this song. It’s got the drive! – Jacob Faber

DIIV- Under The Sun

Last year going on tour with DIIV and getting to see them play this song every day for a month was pretty great. – Jacob Faber

Spacemen 3- Hey Man

Hey man…. – Jacob Faber

Ulrika Spacek- She’s a Cult

Such a banger of a song.  Loved playing with these guys in London. – Jacob Faber

Grateful Dead- China Cat Sunflower / I Know You Rider

I’ve found the Grateful Dead in my early 20’s and couldn’t be more excited.  Don’t call me a dead head though!!! – Jacob Faber

King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard-  Mr. Beat

This whole album is great.  Its like if thrash metal and krautrock had a baby and then that baby met Jerry Garcia and they had a baby.  That baby would be King Gizz. – Jacob Faber

Unknown Mortal Orchestra-  The World is Crowded

That rhythm section though…  Jacob Faber

Night Manager- Wolf Pyramid

One of the best bands from NYC.  They broke up a few years ago but luckily left the world with a few killer EP’s. – Jacob Faber

Thee Oh Sees-  Plastic Plant

This is off of their latest record “A Weird Exits”.  I’ve been loving it lately.  I feel like they’ve been going more and more towards the direction of CAN, which is cool.  They’re using it as an influence but also still do something new and make it fresh.  Jacob Faber

Weaves- Coo Coo

You’re so coo coo, I’m so coo coo. – Jacob Faber
