Sunset Rubdown started as a solo project of Spencer's home recordings. Canadian micro-indie Global Symphonic released the project's first album, Snake's Got A Leg, in June 2005 and a 5-song self-titled EP in January 2006. The EP recently scored a 7.8 and received a glowing review by Brandon Stosuy on Pitchforkmedia.com. On their new album, Shut Up I Am Dreaming, Sunset Rubdown has evolved into a full-fledged band effort, abandoning the idiosyncrasies of lo-fi solo work yet still eschewing the allure of a polished, glossy production. Along with his bandmates, Krug has transformed Sunset Rubdown into a force of nature and crafted an enormous record. Rough and expansive like a thunderstorm or the whole of a canyon, Shut Up I Am Dreaming rollicks and rages in broad, sweeping gestures and tiny messages.
