Before digging into Illegal Moves, the third LP from explosive New York quartet Sunwatchers, you first have to deal with its cover. The image is so bracing, it will probably stay with you the entire time you listen to Illegal Moves. In Scott Lenhardt ’s garish, Mad Magazine -style drawing, a demented Kool-Aid Man stands over the bloodied body of Uncle Sam. A crowd of characters-from Margaret Thatcher and Ronald McDonald to Sunwatchers themselves-looks on in horror or glee
Illegal Moves is their third studio album, and its seven selections capture the group at their tightest and most electric state of sonic and psychic connectivity yet. Album opener "New Dad Blues" charges out of the gates with a high-energy riff in a twisting time signature. The entire band is locked in and playing at full force, with McHugh's wah-wah guitar lines interlocking with Jeff Tobias' blasts of saxophone. Illegal Moves is another strong chapter of Sunwatchers' unique voice and probably their most clear-minded presentation of their collective powers to date.

Genre: Psychedelic Rock. This album is a great mix of free jazz, punk, experimental rock and whatever. It has some really catchy moments, the production is good, the performances are well done and the songwriting is good enough to keep me engaged throughout the whole 40 minutes of instrumentals, full with sax and guitar solos.
