We were truly sad when Austin's Sound Team broke up, but taking their place was Sunset, a project founded by former bassist Bill Baird. Last year, they released an honest, beautiful record entitled, The Glowing City. Stream the entire thing at imeem or just go ahead and get yourself a copy for $9 via local label Autobus. Their newest project (released last month) is the 7" Loveshines II, which we alluded to last year.
Sunset is ready to hit the road this Summer and kicks it off with a show this Thursday at Baby Blue Studio (E. 12th between Comal and Chicon).
Email Bill Baird at blondebill (at) gmail.com if you can help with any of the open dates on the West Coast and also for details on some of the shows with vague location details. We'll also try to update this post with more details as they come.
