THE BLACK The Black features David Longoria on guitar and vocals, Matt Simon on drums, Jason Chronis on bass, and Alan Schaefer on guitar. The material of Sun in the Day Moon at Night was born at the big salmon house on the top of the hill in east austin where three of them once lived and two of them live today. David Longoria was once a member of ...And You Will Know us by the Trail of Dead, and Matt was a member of Voxtrot before joining The Black. At the heart of The Black is pure rock and roll. Sun in the Day Moon at Night is a mix of country, blues, swamp, and folk songs with an awareness of many other musics. Their music is classic, but it is not handed down like an antique. It isn't a fixed object that you place in a cluttered room with other objects. It is a living experience that is always up to date. You may have heard the music of Bob Dylan and The Band, Elvis Presley and The Velvet Underground, Hank Williams and other musicians of the past. The music was a living experience for them just as it is for The Black. Only the details of their life-situations are different. The music has the quality of an old path in the woods. The path may have been there for ages, but the vegetation has changed to reflect the season, the birds are different in number and species, and even the ground below is different. As one listens to the record, one sees their own footprint on the path. "This is our second full length, but it really does feel like our first," shares David Longoria. The Black released Tanglewood lp in 2005, The Donna EP in 2008, and the Little Hits b/w China 45 in 2009. They've shared the stage with Yo La Tengo, Fiery Furnaccs, Yellow Fever, Trail of Dead, Voxtrot, Deertick, Castanets, Vietnam, James Hand, White Denim, The Sword, Paula Nelson, Octopus Project, and many others.
