We’re no stranger to the tunes of Justin Sullivan, be it via his helping hand in other bands (Flat Worms, The Babies, Kevin Morby), or in his own solo project, Night Shop. He just dropped a single from his upcoming EP,The Fountain, which he is releasing via Salinas Records on September 25, and it features none other than Katie Crutchfield of Waxahatchee as well as guitar help from Meg Duffy and Justin Taveniere on bass. “In The Twilight Sun” is a tune that fits its title aptly and gracefully. Sullivan’s voice is like a soothing balm, and when his vocals meet with Crutchfield’s, the song becomes the sonic equivalent of when night meets the end of day in a symphony of the vivid colors of a glowing sunset. At four minutes in length, the song washes over you gently but steadily and Sullivan’s quick lyrics emerge bolder with every listen.
I may be a few days late to this track, but it’s too good to not pass along. Night Shop is the project of LA’s Justin Sullivan (previously of The Babies) who will be releasing his debut LP soon on Woodsist/Mare Records. This track is everything you want in a bedroom pop ditty–delicate acoustic guitar strumming, a deeply compelling vocal resonance, and soft percussion that eventually joins the mix. It’s not all soft edges though, some deftly executed electric riffs give way about a minute in and add just enough bite to the number. Sullivan winds his lyrics through the track, which bounces along gracefully for almost four minutes of bedroom pop bliss. Take a peek at the cute video below and then ready yourself forIn The Break, which will be out on September 14.
