Drowned in Sound

The practical, prosaic, documentarian's way to open a review of the new Sunset Rubdown album would be to note that it’s largely recorded live, and eschews the multiple overdubs of its predecessors, Shut Up, I Am Dreaming and Random Spirit Lover, all the better to reflect the stamping-flailing, wuh-huh-hooing bacchanal

of the live-shows (and damn is there a lot of wuh-huh-hooing, when it comes to Sunset Rubdown.)

Purchasing Dragonslayer from Amazon helps support Album of the Year. Or consider a donation?
