Call To Confirm Colored Copies Are Still Available
Sonny & the Sunsets are a beautiful west coast thing. Birthed from the sand, the surf, and twilight campfires down in Ocean Beach, Sonny & the Sunsets' busted beach-pop songs spark recollections of doo wop's otherworldly despair, a dose of goofball humor from the Michael Hurley school, and positive possibilities exuded by Jonathan Richman. Helmed by the singer/songwriter, playwright, author and onetime troubadour Sonny Smith, The Sunsets have featured a revolving door lineup that has included Shayde Sartin, Ryan Browne, Kelley Stoltz and Tahlia Harbour. Adopting a range of sounds Smith's sardonic, laid-back style is interwoven throughout his compelling songwriting and vocals.
Polyvinyl Records is pleased offer a colored 180g vinyl reissue of Sonny & the Sunsets' cornerstone 2009 studio album Tomorrow Is Alright which Pitchfork wrote, "...matches 10 of Sonny Smith's wry, easygoing tunes with a far-reaching pastiche of vintage trappings, never feeling dutifully retro but rather, like their tough-to-pin-down citymates Girls, intangibly classic...So many bands put in a lot of work trying to make themselves sound older than their years; with their quiet confidence and no shortage of killer material, the Sunsets make it seem almost too easy."
