Sonny & The Sunsets Longtime Companion CD/LP -- Out Now!

Sonny & The Sunsets - Longtime Companion

Longtime Companion is a country record. It's a break up record. Love and Heartache. Every song was written during and is about his break up with his girlfriend of ten years.

Gene Clark, The Flying Burrito Brothers, Townes Van Zandt, a little Johnny Cash, even the countrier side of the Kinks - there are hints of all of these in the new record and yet ultimately it still remains a Sonny & The Sunsets sound through and through.

All orders receive an INSTANT MP3 download at checkout.

Sonny & The Sunsets Longtime Companion CD - $10 / Yellow LP - $14

Sara's Pick of the Week: of Montreal Hissing Fauna 2xLP

of Montreal

of Montreal's Hissing Fauna, Are You the Destroyer? appeared on over 30 year-end "best of" lists and remains one of the band's most beloved albums -- featuring classics such as "Suffer for Fashion," "The Past is a Grotesque Animal," "Heimdalsgate Like A Promethean Curse," and many more.

Newly re-mastered by John Golden, Hissing Fauna is packaged in a deluxe triple gatefold jacket and comes with a free 18" x 24" poster (frame not included because it's hanging on the wall of our office) and a 15-song of Montreal digital sampler.

Also, for one week only we'll throw in a few of Montreal buttons and stickers with everybody who orders Hissing Fauna (CD or LP).
