"Unto the Sun is the sprawling, free-wheeling debut from the New Atlantis Octet, the mid-Atlantic supergroup formed by guitarist Edward Ricart (formerly of Washington DC- presently a resident of Yellow Springs, OH) and drummer Sam Lohman (Washington DC). Ricart and Lohman are also known as the free-rock duo Matta Gawa, a no-holds barred improv unit that marries the textures and tones of creative experimental rock to the methods and techniques of free jazz. Unto the Sun was recorded with Jason LaFarge at Seizures Palace (Swans, Child Abuse, Khanate) just two weeks before Matta Gawa's sophmore release, Tambora.

The record was tracked one evening during the Summer of 2010, during a tremendously busy time for the leaders- Ricart had just completed a string of dates on the East Coast working with master drummer G. Calvin Weston, and headed straight to Brooklyn for this session following their final gig in Boston. Lohman had been collaborating extensively with electro/noise duo Ca$h $lave Clique, and playing in duo with underheralded, grossly underrecorded DC-based saxophonist Aaron Martin. Martin and Lohman had often performed in trio with Baltimore-based bassist Vattel Cherry (Charles Gayle), or as a quartet with Ricart.

Unto the Sun was initially conceived by Ricart as an opportunity to make a second recording with his quartet, featuring trumpeter Herb Robertson, bassist Jason Ajemian (Chicago Underground Trio), and drummer Andrew Barker (Gold Sparkle Band, Acid Birds). Herb Robertson was away working in Europe, and the session quickly blossomed into something very different... With the intent of creating a powerful new ensemble, and uniting disparate scenes from throughout the mid-Atlantic, Ricart and Lohman merged their New York and DC ensembles. Trumpeter Roy Campbell Jr and trombonist Steve Swell joined the group, rounding out a powerhouse ensemble!

Ricart and Lohman, collaborators of Sun Ra Arkestra saxophonist Marshall Allen, envisioned the larger group session as a fitting opportunity to pay heartfelt tribute to the vital spirit energy of Sun Ra, his Arkestra, and the great Marshall Allen, while relentlessly digging into new sonic space. The 2 drums + 2 bass rhythm section stirs up endless waves of shifting textures and pulse, while the frontline darts and soars effortlessly, weaving concentric flurries of consonance and dissonance. Ricart splits the difference, digging into the polyrhythmic underpinning of the rhythm section and stepping up front with the horns.

Unto the Sun is a rowdy debut from a group of phenomenal improvisors. This session, released May 15, 2013 via Not Two Records, also served as the conceptual seed for New Atlantis Records, a label that began as a vessel for documenting musicians from the mid-Atlantic, and much like this ensemble, is comprised of fine offerings from established legends and rising stars of creative music."-Not Two
