Music might be fun! It's an interactive experience, not a chore-or worse, a meaningless
task repeated endlessly for an unclear reason, like clicking on a playlist and going about
your business. That's why Sea Note is proud to bring back an old favorite from the days
of standalone physical records: The Sundowners! It's been over twenty years since
we've heard from them, but in the mid-1990s, they released three 7-inch records: "Goat
Songs," "The Girl With the Thing In Her Hair," and "Singing Death Chants to the
Stars." Each one of these releases were so distinctive, each in its own way, that rumors
immediately spread that each one was actually a Drag City act in disguise, slumming it

on Sea Note! An insulting suggestion for The Sundowners themselves, whose shape-
shifting abilities were one of the decade's most underrated stories. Perhaps this is why

the long gap between the third and fourth 7-inch? Ultimately, none of this matters-
just plop the tonearm down into the groove and you'll experience the singular experience
of The Sundowners in an all-new sound. With their trademark lo-fi ingenuity, they forge
a set of minimal yet hooky pop tunes, tweaked and brimming with colorful approaches to
old tropes, with recycled psych-synth oddments from the history of sweet music. Spin a
copy, you'll see!
