Sonny & The Sunsets, Tashaki Miyaki, The Aquadolls

Sonny & The Sunsets

Sonny & the Sunsets' busted beach-pop songs spark recollections of doo wop's otherworldly despair, the kitchen sink savoir faire of The Raincoats, a dose of goofball humor from the Michael Hurley school, and positive possibilities exuded by Jonathan Richman, with and without The Modern Lovers. Helmed by the acclaimed singer / songwriter, playwright, author & onetime troubadour pianoman Sonny Smith, The Sunsets have featured a revolving door lineup that became permanent with Kelley Stoltz, Tahlia Harbour, Ryan Browne and Zack Ehrlich. Still more friends and neighbors including John Dwyer, Tim Cohen and Shayde Sartin cosmically appeared to contribute to the debut LP, Tomorrow is Alright. The LP is limited to 500 copies. Tomorrow is Alright hits on all the right zones, from sly VU-like observations to the true bedlam explored by Holy Modal Rounders. All the while, Sonny's pen is soaked with an EC comics sense of storytelling, touching equally on the macabre, the absurd, the humorous, and above all, the entertaining.

Tashaki Miyaki

"Menace and mystery surround this female Jesus and Mary Chain, whose vocals cut like honey-coated razor blades" - The Guardian

"Tashaki Miyaki has a sound to them that is both very old and new at the same time, with a haunting beauty that fascinates me. Listening to their music brings to mind something of a mix of David Lynch and the Cowboy Junkies, but not because of a comparable look or style, but because of the emotional resonance of their unique sound." - CBS News

"...so pretty I'm afraid saying anything else might diminish it." - FADER

" [Tashaki Miyaki] are being touted as the female Jesus and Mary Chain thanks to dreamy songs like "Somethin' is Better Than Nothin,'" and we're not about to argue." - NYLON magazine

" It has that heavy, heavy, sullen feeling at the start.. and once the sullen vocals kick in I'm totally won over, every single time." - NME
