Editors’ Notes

Sonny Smith of Sonny & The Sunsets had a previous life as a blues pianist (he mostly plays an easy, twangy guitar here), and he also writes short stories, novels and plays in addition to making charming, primitive indie pop. (He’s also the guy behind the amazing “100 Records” faux archive project). Tomorrow Is Alright is the band’s debut, and it’s filled with breezy, shambling songs that have a ring of familiarity as well as a distinct stamp of originality. Sonny’s got his musical history lessons down: “Chapters” and “Strange Love” are infused with an innocent, 1950s doo-wop feel, while “Death Cream” and “Lovin’ On an Older Gal” have gnarled, fuzzy ‘60s roots. “Planet of Women” and “The Houris” rock and roll with the charm of early Jonathan Richman, while other tunes, like the languid and memorable “Too Young to Burn” have the same murky rawness that colors fellow San Franciscans the Sandwitches. These are all merely convenient touchstones, however; as Smith’s “100 Records” project proved, the guy is a chameleon, and he makes great music of all colors and stripes.

I never used to have a favorite song, but the first time I heard "Too Young to Burn," it caught all my attention. Now whenever it starts playing, I jump up and start singing along "every tear rolling down is a lesson learned..."

This album has just the right mix of sweetness, zaniness, abandon, and joy. The opening track is a gem, but the entire album is wonderful. I'd even say it has made my summer. Trust me, just get it.

My new addiction

Wonderful underproduced album that sounds like it's from another era. Track 1 has been stuck in my head all week.

awesome tell your friends

Biography

Formed: 2007

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '00s, '10s

The Sunsets coalesced in 2007 around prolific Bay Area songwriter, author, filmmaker, and visual artist Sonny Smith. With a rotating lineup made up of San Francisco regulars, including multi-instrumentalist Kelley Stoltz, Tahlia Harbour (the Dry Spells), John Dwyer (Thee Oh Sees), Tim Cohen, and Shayde Sartin (Skygreen Leopards), the Sunsets gave Smith a perfectly sloppy, immaculately informed backdrop for his wry love songs and touching moments of all-too-real weirdness. Following a debut EP, Hypnotist,...
