National Public Radio is now offering an Exclusive First Listen of SUNSET RUBDOWN’S Dragonslayer leading up to the June 23 release of the album from Krug and crew. Go to the NPR site to hear the album.
NPR’s Bob Boilen writes of Dragonslayer: “While so much pop music is full of sweet sound, Sunset Rubdown makes bitter pop music. Nothing goes down easy, but the songs are still contagious. I’d call Dragonslayer a series of vignettes — small stories that sometimes feel like a cross between a whacked-out circus and a fairy tale. It may take a while to sort out the characters and stories in the songs, but they’re all so much fun, you’ll have plenty of chances to do it.”
