Sunset Rubdown: Self-titled EP & forthcoming full-length Shut Up I Am Dreaming

As many of you are already aware, Sunset Rubdown (side project from Wolf Parade's yodeler extraordinaire Spencer Krug) has been generating quite a buzz as of late. Pitchfork gave the EP a 7.8 on Friday and just today reviewed the opening track "Stadiums & Shrines II" from their highly-anticipated forthcoming LP, giving the tune 4 stars.

Your opinion of Krug's vocals will determine the level at which you will enjoy this material. I, like many others, prefer the Wolf Parade tracks with Krug supplying the vocals to those tracks on which bandmate Dan Boeckner sings. While affected yelping is hardly a rarity in modern indie rock, Krug's unique phrasing sets him apart from his contemporaries and makes him one of the genre's most interesting and compelling vocalists.

The tracks from the upcoming full-length seem to be more fleshed out and are not as lo-fi as the tracks from the EP and the band's first album, Snake's Got a Leg. Shut Up I Am Dreaming will be released May 2, 2006 on Absolutely Kosher Records. Pre-order the LP: Here. Buy the 5 song EP: Here.

Below I have posted 3 tracks from Shut Up I Am Dreaming and my favorite track from the self-titled EP. Enjoy!
