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.
Hand Habits are your new favorite act– well they are if you have five minutes to spend with this gorgeous americana-ish track. “All The While” will essentially bewitch you from its opening notes, asthe simple combination of guitar, vocals and drums are hauntingly beautiful. Meg Duffy, the front lady behind the moniker, has a voice that will bathe you in its warm and yet hold you completely at its mercy while the bluesy guitar parts twist and turn through the background. Her debut album,Humble Before The Void, will be out via Woodsist sometime at the start of 2017.
