Review: “Moods Baby Moods” by Sonny & The Sunsets
San Francisco psych-rock mainstays Sonny & The Sunsets put on their dancing shoes for their funkiest record to date. With an assist from tUnE-yArDs’ Merrill Garbus, the Sunsets have crafted an album that draws from their usual bag of tricks (70s punk, power pop) and also throws in elements of new wave, ’80s funk, and random junk beats. Sonically thrilling and bursting with emotions and sentiments that cut deep, this is a fine addition to the Sunsets’ prolific catalog.
Best tracks: “Moods,” “Well But Strangely Hung Man,” “My Little Death”
