Sonny and The Sunsets
Talent Night at the Ashram
Out Feb 17th, 2015 Listen on Spotify

Long an influential presence on the west coast's thriving garage rock scene, Sonny Smith has assembled scene-defining compilation albums, put on DIY shows and, at his totally-analog home studio in San Rafael, recorded some the coolest new bands in town, like Cool Ghouls. On this new album, The Sunsets' always-catchy beach-pop takes a sharper turn toward 60s psych but, as Aquarium Drunkard notes, "There remains a backbone to Sonny's work rooted in letting all your weirdness out, even the darkest parts."
