Sundays is the debut full length from Oakland-based Tanukichan, aka multi-instrumentalist Hannah van Loon. At surface level, the album sounds just how the title describes: hazy, dreamy, reflective, just like a lazy Sunday afternoon. Upon second and third listens, the dreamy music unveils a deeper world: an ever present sense of longing, an endless state of summer and a period of instability that plagues us all at one point or another in our lives.

Raised in San Francisco, van Loon started out making classical, bluegrass and jazz music as well as playing in numerous bands in the area before deciding to make something more personal. What started with a few unfocused demos, with van Loon playing all the instruments herself in her house, became a studio experience and viable collection of music after her friend Anthony Ferraro of Astronauts, Etc. introduced her to Company Records founder Chaz Bear (Toro Y Moi, Les Sins). After collaborating on her 2016 EP Radiolove, van Loon and Bear set out to make a much more sonically cohesive release, with both the producer and artist playing all the instruments on the record. The result is a slice of dream pop that could only come from the combination of the laid back atmosphere of California and the nostalgic and often difficult memories that are generally associated with coming of age.

Tony Kill is a nuanced sound artist who; in recent years, has seen success among a span of creative disciplines. Oft-commissioned to lend a nuanced sound to celebrity and commercial conglomerates (ie. Teyana Taylor, Kendall and Kylie Jenner, Pacific Sunwear and NASA), his virtuosic production sensibilities have helped forge the poetically abrasive identity surfacing in the nation's capital.

Having produced five Bandcamp-featured albums over the past three years, the "wizard" [Julian Casablancas, The Strokes 2014] who has shared bills with The Voidz, Chaz Bear, Lou Tides and Mr. Twin Sister anticipates; among other projects, the release of a solo EP this winter, 'The Oblivion of Pleasure and Wine.'
