Follow while we jump into the music of lo-fi / rock clouds of Long Beach, Cali band, Sonnyskyes. The LP “i kinda like living in the sky” is the second release by the band, and I can honestly say, that the ten-track album is pretty flippin’ great (hence why there’s a full stream below).

Listen to Indie Underground’s two favourite tracks off the LP – “let’s go to the future” and “the sun is hanging out tonight” before streaming the album.

Sonnyskyes – “let’s go to the future”

Sonnyskyes – “the sun is hanging out tonight”

Mike Smith (Sonnyskyes) recorded all the instruments on “i kinda like living in the sky” (except one track where he enlisted friends for some horns). Mike writes “The new album tells a tale of the “cloud band” the forms to play one show before precipitating… the sun asks me to open up the show. Under the cloud bands spell, I wrote and performed these songs in their honor”.
