Sonny & The Sunsets Announce New LP

by @thoughtontracks


Sonny Smith is a tough man to pigeon hole. Just when you think you’ve got him figured, he turns the equation on its head. Smith has kept busy since leaving Fat Possum for Polyvinyl last year. In the wake of his divorce, Smith & the Sunsets released the best break-up record of 2012 in Longtime Companion. Earlier this year, he debuted the third (and strongest) installment in his 100 Records series, showcasing his range by bouncing from reggae to instrumental folk to jangly garage rock with ease.

On June 11, Sonny & the Sunsets will release its latest LP Antenna to the Afterworld (Pre-Order). Stream the album’s opening track “Dark Corners.” It’s a synth-heavy pop tune that proves a far cry from the broken-hearted cowboy songs of Longtime Companion. Also, check out the band’s cover of John Lennon’s “Imagine,” set for limited-edition, 7″ treatment on Record Store Day.
