Spare Machine – Breakdown Routines (from “Hit or Miss”)
“This collection of songs is largely made up of demos that were recorded, for the most part, quickly and poorly by Mark Janka (Spare Machine, the Lesser Birds of Paradise). These recordings feature much audible noise floor, questionable writing, and awkward delivery. There are some some rather nice moments as well. The two outtake tracks from Lesser Birds of Paradise’s A Suitable Frame sessions were properly recorded.”

“Death? Afterworld? Android lovers dying in the streets bleeding green blood? Homeless girls? Dogs stranded here from other planets? What are Sonny & The Sunsets getting at on Antenna to the Afterworld, a fast-moving record of new wave synths and post punk beats?”
“On Antenna to the Afterworld, Smith likens himself to a space being visiting Earth using wry humor, gritty poetry, and a myriad of musical lenses fleshed out by drummer Kelley Stoltz’s Joy Division-like beats, Ryan Browne’s new wavish basslines, and Tahlia Harbour’s deadpan vocals.”
Stream the new Sonny & The Sunsets song ‘Green Blood’ taken from their upcoming album “Antenna to the Afterworld,” due out on June 11th via Polyvinyl Records. Pre-order, HERE.
