The new full length album from the Dead Oceans signed singer-songwriter Kevin Morby, following on from 2019's Oh My God.
Morby began working on Sundowner at home, using mostly a four-track Tascam 424 recorder. He then headed to Texas’ Sonic Ranch to record the album with producer Brad Cook. “I wrote the entire album wearing headphones, hunched over the 424, letting my voice and guitar pass through the machine, getting lost in the warmth of the tape as if another version of myself was living on the inside, singing back at me,” Morby said in a statement. “I was mesmerized by the magic of the four track not only as a recording device, but also an instrument, and considered it my songwriting partner throughout the whole process.”
