The prolific but reliably wide-eyed San Francisco psych-pop band Sonny & The Sunsets, who always sound amazed at their own ability to make music, will soon release Antenna To The Afterworld, a concept album that’s both about aliens and about the death of one of frontman Sonny Smith’s friends. We posted the early track “Dark Corners,” and now they’ve shard a second one. “Palmreader” is a lush, full guitar-tapestry that reminds me a bit of the Chills or the Feelies, and it works as a prettily numb meditation on death. Listen below.
Antenna To The Afterworld is out 6/11 on Polyvinyl.
