Sunglasses are back. Finally. - Oh My Rockness

Recommended Show
July 09, 2012
Remember these two guys? Sunglasses put out that excellent EP for Lefse Records back in 2010. Two very short years later (the sure fly as you get older, don't they? Oh, how they fly...) Savannah's finest are finally coming out with their debut full-length.

The people will certainly be ready because Sunglasses' can make THE JAMS. Now, these jams tend to go all sunny and poppy. That is true. But they pop-out all weird like. Their catchy choruses always seem to be competing with some type of controlled messiness in the background. (Some people just call that controlled messiness "lo-fi" I guess, but I don't care).

Sunglasses's sonically strange soundscapes (that could also be a hit summertime jam, don't forget) can kind of be compared with Animal Collective, perhaps, because who else do you think of when you see the word "soundscapes." But Sunglasses's have better beats than AC. Just saying.

On a closing side note: I saw that Sunglasses claim Harry Nillson as an influence. You should go listen to his album "The Point" again. That's some excellence wrapped up in a whole lot of craziness, right there.

Sunglasses play Glasslands, on Saturday, July 14th.
