Description

Sonny & The Sunsets

Sonny & the Sunsets are a beautiful west coast thing. Birthed from the sand, the surf, and twilight campfires down in Ocean Beach, Sonny & the Sunsetsí busted beach-pop songs spark recollections of doo wop's otherworldly despair, a dose of goofball humor from the Michael Hurley school, and positive possibilities exuded by Jonathan Richman. Helmed by the singer / songwriter, playwright, author & onetime troubadour Sonny Smith, The Sunsets have featured a revolving door lineup that have included Shayde Sartin, Ryan Browne, Kelley Stotlz and Tahlia Harbour. Adopting a range of sounds Smith's sardonic, laid-back style is interwoven throughout his compelling songwriting and vocals.

Bouquet

Bouquet is a kaleidoscopic pop duo from Los Angeles, CA consisting of Carolyn Pennypacker Riggs and Max Foreman. The two set out to create a uniquely inviting, immersive sound, intoning delicate vocal harmonies to a rising, ghostlike mass of guitar, trembling synthesizer, and pulsations of early rhythm machines. Lyrics alternate between painterly portraits out of time and devastatingly simple pop tenacity to delightful effect. Bouquet's music echoes the undefinable post-punk wonders Young Marble Giants and This Mortal Coil, synth heroes such as Cluster and Suicide, and the dulcet sensibilities of Sibylle Baier and Sandy Denny.
