Sunset Rubdown's 'Shut Up I Am Dreaming' Is Finally Coming to Vinyl
Fifteen years after its initial release
Published Oct 14, 2021No, you're not dreaming — Sunset Rubdown's excellent full-band debut Shut Up I Am Dreaming is finally coming to vinyl 15 years after its original release. The album is set to arrive on wax on November 19 via frontman Spencer Krug's own label, Pronounced Kroog.
Shut Up I Am Dreaming was initially released on CD in 2006 via Absolutely Kosher Records. This new vinyl edition features remastered audio by Harris Newman, who mastered the original album, and a reformatted version of Matt Moroz's cover art. This marks the second vinyl release from Pronounced Kroog, following Krug's Fading Graffiti album earlier this year.
Shut Up I Am Dreaming is the first album after Krug expanded Sunset Rubdown from a solo venture, and the project's second album overall following 2005's Krug-only Snake's Got a Leg. It was followed by 2007's Random Spirit Lover and 2009's Dragonslayer before the band quietly broke up. Krug continued making music as Moonface until retiring the moniker in 2018, and now releases music under his own name and with longtime band Wolf Parade.
