This is an mp3 blog attempting to document the gross amount of music I listen to. About once a day, I'll post something I like. If you're a copyright holder on anything I host, get in touch, and we'll settle things in a steel cage instead of a courtroom.

The Sundays

An unfairly forgotten college-rock gem for you to kick off your weekend.

The Sundays were a band that probably missed their time by about three years. By the time their debut album came out in 1990, their mid-80's-ish jangle pop seemed vaguely anachronistic. Despite a modest hit with "Here's Where the Story Ends" and an album peaking at 39 (atypical for such a throughly British band), they seem to have sunk into realms of obscurity (at least, if you're not some record nerd who spazzes out over shit that won't get you laid). Their next two albums also had respectable, if brief, chart showings. They probably would have done better if Rough Trade Records hadn't gone tits up in 1991. Despite the fact that the guitar line smacks of too much borrowed from "Cemetry Gates," it's still a throughly enjoyable pop song.

For fans of the Smiths, Mazzy Star, the Cocteau Twins, and the first couple My Bloody Valentine records.
