Sharing the bill with Setting Sun!
“The title to Setting Sun’s fourth album, Fantasurreal, is the perfect made-up combination of two words to capture the spirit and sound of the record. Largely the work of one man, Gary Levitt, Setting Sun creates a fantastical mix of whimsy and brightly hued pop matched to a surreal lyrical sensibility that’s the product of either a vivid imagination or some good drugs. Cuts like the leadoff “Driving” and the six-minute paean to sustained adolescence, “Don’t Grow Up,” recall Grandaddy in their mutations of organic instrumentation. Perhaps most out-there is “The Sympathetic CEO” which is sung from the point of view of an executive sitting on top of the world, though, it sounds like it comes from the bottom of the deep blue. Whatever, you want to call it, Setting Sun has made an album that’s wonderfully weird.”
