Sunset

Add Date: July 29

Artist: Sunset

Album: The Glowing City

Label: Autobus

Genre: Indie rock, throwback pop

Comments: Sunset is Austin's Bill Baird, bassist for the now-defunct buzz band Sound Team, and a prolific singer/songwriter in his own right. The Glowing City is nearly 80 minutes of '70s-inspired pop music that would fit right in with modern stuff like the Shins, Super Furry Animals and, of course, Sound Team themselves. My favorites were "The World Is Awaiting," "Twenty-Four Karat Soul," "Your Eyes Are Mirrors" and "When Perfect Flames Expire."
