All Left Turns: An Interview with Sonny and the Sunsets

Sonny Smith might be the West Coast's best, least predictable songwriter, but don't try to pin him down. He followed up his 100 Records performance art project with first a country album and now a synthy, whimsical, sci-fi exploration of the afterlife. "I didn't have it all mapped out," he says. "I thought it would be fun to take a left turn ... and then another one."

Sonny and the Sunsets: Tomorrow Is Alright

Sonny and the Sunsets do a laidback take on '50s and '60s pop songs, including doo-wop, girl group, and b-movie sci-fi influences. They're cutesy and clever in that ubiquitous indie way.
