FULL ALBUM STREAM: THE SUMNER BROTHERS – I'LL BE THERE TOMORROW

Taking liberties with Japanese proverbs one could say, “None of us is as loud as all of us” and quoting Songs:Illinois, “The Sumner Brothers have been flying under the radar for too long.” So today, a group of us like minded blogs and long time Sumner Brothers supporters have come together to stream their newest offering, I’ll Be There Tomorrow. I’ll Be There Tomorrow follows in the same vein as their self-titled album featuring a complete band and much fuller sound than their In The Garage series.

The album comes out September 15 but today, you can listen to it all here: 

BTW: Those other blogs posting about the album today are HearYaSlowcousticSongs:IllinoisHerohill and You Crazy Dreamers. They’re all fantastic and deserve a moment of your time.

THE SUMNER BROTHERS – IN THE GARAGE 2 (Your Last Chance)


I completely missed this album last year and I’m not quite sure how. Hell, when I saw the title it took a little while for me to believe it actually was a new album, but make no mistake, it certainly is. To quote the band, “This record is for the fans – This is what the The Sumner Brothers sound like with a flat of beer, a few friends on occasion and an 8 track.”

In the Garage 2 is more of a follow-up to their debut cd, In The Garage, than the eponymous album that was released between the two. The material for the Garage series is culled from various archives of recorded material, drunk jams, house show performances, impromptu collaborations and whatnot. Obviously, this results in a much rawer sound and feel, but it’s that very sound and feel that made me fall in love with the Sumner Brothers to begin with all those years ago.

It’s 1/2 a year old and I apologize for missing it back then, but don’t sleep on this album folks, it’s Essential Listening to say the least.
