Did you hear? Sundowner - Four One Five Two demos

Sundowner is Chris McCaughan’s solo project when he’s not busy with the Lawrence Arms. I’m guessing most of you have already heard his debut record, Four One Five Two. If you haven’t, let me tell you about it. It’s a mostly acoustic record with touches of viola, keys, and background vocals. Do you own a shitty car that can barely start on a cold Chicago morning? I bet you have this album in your CD player.

These are four demos that appeared on his myspace before Four One Five Two. They all come from the debut, and as expected, they are rougher. The guitar sounds thin, but surprisingly, there are background vocals. All told, these demos are pretty good- a must-hear for Lawrence Arms and Sundowner aficionados. I must add that I downloaded this from LawrenceArms.org, and you can find much more cool shit over there.

Get it here!

Thinking of how awesome music like this sounds in that shitty car almost makes the season worth it.
