It's been a good year for Fathers & Suns, the Long Beach band made up of Arturo Bandini (guitars and vocals), Jesus Lara (guitars and vocals), Luis Renteria (drums and percussion) and Jay Penev (bass and vocals). Last November, they released their debut album, Mama Provides, a 12-song conglomeration of '60s-influenced pop, garage-tinged rock and quirky folk. Locals ate it up with ravenous appetite—as evidenced by this summer's Busker Fest, a live music festival which the band competed in, and won hands-down. This Tuesday evening, they play at Long Beach's indie band motherland, the Prospector, where maybe, if we're lucky, they'll give audiences a taste of that new material they're working on.
