shut up i am dreaming
"Sunset Rubdown sounds like a man wishing he could be a monster"
I heard a completely unsubstantiated rumor that Sunset Rubdown is going to be added to the Pitchfork Music Festival. The source of said rumor is really cool, but I can't vouch for his/her credibility on matters such as these. Just remember, if it does happen, you heard it here first. And if not, don't blame me, it's just what I heard.
At any rate, I'm going to go out on a limb and proclaim that Sunset Rubdown's upcoming LP, Shut Up I Am Dreaming (out May 2), is going to be on my year end top 10 (or so) list. I just pre-ordered it from Absolutely Kosher, and the leaked tracks I've heard are outstanding. Dare I say I like Sunset Rubdown just as much as Spencer's "real" band? The songs are softer and spookier, but pack the same emotional punch.
Here's a track from the LP:
