Who is Sentinel?

A 3-person band out of Oakland, California, with Tarabud on vocals and bass, Dennis Bestafka on guitar, and Bill Mowery on drums.

What is their sound?

Indie-Dream-Pop. Here’s a song that was in director Izzy Chan’s last film, Love in San Francisco

And here’s a more recent tune.

What is Sentinel's favorite movie soundtrack?

Sling Blade, soundtrack by Daniel Lanois. “It’s moody, intense, innovative and transportive. Daniel Lanois has always been a favorite musician and producer of ours—way ahead of his time.”

What is on their music playlist?

Tarabud: Eden’s Island, song: Full Moon. Really enjoy spoken poetry and music mixed together.”

Dennis: The Chameleons. I’m a sucker for all the great ’80s stuff still.”
