Champaign / Urbana, IL
Shuga Records / Staghorn Alliance
We, are Staghorn.
An enigmatically narrated four-piece outfit from Champaign, IL debuts “Parousia I / Kismet II” – 30 minutes of euphonic introspection where global ethic and activism transcend the traditional parameters of music. Equally heavy in concept and musicality, “Parousia I / Kismet II” is the soundtrack to building a better world. Set within proverbial walls of sound a spoken word narrative concerning a final human settlement evokes images of dystopia, invoking moods both bleak and hopeful.
Strongly principled as a do-it-yourself collective operating Leave Your Mark Print Shop and Mills Custom Amps, all vinyl and CD copies of “Parousia I / Kismet II” come with detailed custom packaging, designed, screen-printed, and built from the ground up in house. Creativity and compassion effects a working, sustainable future. -MATT FOX ( SHAI HULUD )
The two founding members of Staghorn live off-grid, living by example to inspire others to question the status-quo and look to new solutions for a more fulfilling life. After touring for 2 years on their first release, opening for many national touring artists, and supporting yndi halda on their first US tour in 10 years, Staghorn has recorded ( Live to 2 inch tape @ Earth Analog Studios ) their follow up chapter “”Wormwood III”” and intend to release the record on Shuga Records mid 2018.
Music. Thought. Action. Solidarity.
