    Core (2014) is a reinvention of ARJUN’s sound and style, rooted in carefully crafted melodies which tell resonant stories without words. ARJUN recruited John Medeski (Medeski Martin & Wood) for some organ work on the title track. Core was mixed by Scotty Hard (Bjork, Wu-Tang Clan, Antibalas, Arto Lindsay, MMW, Charlie Hunter, Sex Mob) at Duro of Brooklyn, Brooklyn, NY and Mastered by Michael Fossenkemper (Soulive, Bootsy Collins, Herbie Hancock) at Turtletone Mastering, New York, NY.

    What the critics are saying about CORE:

    “When you hear the intricacies of Eddie Arjun Peters’ guitar skills, you will know exactly why there are no vocals on this record… the guitar IS the vocal” – Middle Tennessee Music

    “An excellent album, a consistently impressive, enjoyable body of work” - The Faulkner Review

    “ARJUN has truly developed an eargasmic experience that is likely to place the band among some of the greatest performers of our time” – G&S

    “A lavish display of rock and jazz…this is perfection” – Sell Out Records

    “If you are having doubts about purchasing this album, leave them behind. CORE is near perfect in every way. ARJUN are steadfastly moving instrumental rock into the future, taking with it the noble heritage of the past” – Jamsphere

    “…Intriguing musical textures that explode in an enriching musical experience” - The Appetizer

    “A mystifying album that will melt you at the “Core” – Shadows Records

    “One of the best records I’ve heard all year” – For The Fan

    “A great pleasure to listen to…a diverse musical landscape” – Intropink

    “Deeply engrossing…“Core” is excellent” – Beach Sloth

    “This record demands to be listened straight through…there’s magic here”- Sir Jorge of Culver

    “This is plainly just enjoyable listening” – Indie Band Guru

    “…Never a wasted second on “Core”…this one is highly recommended, indeed.” – Forestpunk

    “…Revel and escape in this masterful instrumental album!” – Carina’s Music

    “Everything about this record makes me want to take a road trip with ‘CORE’ as a soundtrack” – Blue Harvest Records

    “A truly mesmerising pattern of melodies and rhythm.” – Band Camp Diaries

    “The combo of a solid and expressive rhythm section in the form of Myers and Lyles and the artistic vision and technical prowess of Peters come together to create a very unique listening experience on CORE” – Windslow Review

    “…bombards you with feeling, fervent and wild with anticipation.” – Sergeant Sparrow

    “An enriching musical experience” – CMUSE

about

ARJUN, the three-piece instrumental band from New York, has been trailblazing their own hybrid of rock and improvisational jazz since 2003. Made up of Eddie Arjun Peters (guitar), Lamar Myers (drums), and Andre Lyles (bass), ARJUN fuses the power of rock with improvisational alternative jazz, resulting in a delicate balance of intricately crafted melodies backed by powerhouse musicianship.

After signing with Pheromone Records in 2006, ARJUN released their debut album Pieces followed by 2013’s Space, the first installment of a planned trilogy.

Core (2014), second in the trilogy, is a reinvention of ARJUN’s sound and style, rooted in carefully crafted melodies which tell resonant stories without words. ARJUN recruited John Medeski (Medeski Martin & Wood) for some organ work on the title track. Core was mixed by Scotty Hard (Bjork, Wu-Tang Clan, Antibalas, Arto Lindsay, MMW, Charlie Hunter, Sex Mob) at Duro of Brooklyn, Brooklyn, NY and Mastered by Michael Fossenkemper (Soulive, Bootsy Collins, Herbie Hancock) at Turtletone Mastering, New York, NY.
