Sunset Rubdown New Track
I can't believe it. In as many weeks two of my all time favourite bands have released tracks. Last week Sonic Youth, this week Sunset Rubdown. If you haven't heard them yet, here would be a great place to start. New song idiot Heart is the 6 minute delight from their upcoming release Dragonslayer.
It really is shaping up to be a good year for new releases.
Sunset Rubdown was once the moniker under which Spencer Krug released low fidelity solo recordings. The project has long since evolved into a full band, and Dragonslayer is the third full-length recorded by the whole group. Besides Krug, it features the three musicians who originally signed on: Jordan Robson-Cramer on drums, guitar and keys, Michael Doerksen on guitar and bass, and Camilla Wynne Ingr on keys, percussion and vocals. And now, for the first time, newest member Mark Nicol can be heard on bass, drums, and percussion.
