Dragonslayer by Sunset Rubdown… First Impressions..

Real quick, my friends! Sunset Rubdown’s Dragonslayer leaked out! Oh CALLOO CALLAY!!! I loved “Idiot Heart” (it even inspired a mixtape!) when it was released, but after hearing the Introduding Moonface 7″ I had no idea what to expect from Dragonslayer, but oh man oh man oh man oh MAN…

I pre-ordered the record yesterday, but with the leak today I wasn’t about to wait around to listen (eventhough I get my official digital download for pre-ordering tomorrow) I’m on my second time through and holy shitake mushrooms, this is just beautiful!!! It seems simpler on the surface, but already the intricacies (did I spell that right? firefox says yes) are popping up, the layers are starting to unfold. It definitely sounds more “band like” versus all Krug, but whatever, I’m just so excited, I couldn’t even wait to do a “real” review! We’ll do one of those later, after a few hundred more listens….

Here’s one of the song that just floored me (one of many, like the 10 minute plus finale “Dragon’s Lair”… wow), as well as “Idiot Heart”….

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got some listenin’ to do! Happy, happy, happy…. joy, joy, joy…
