The day is coming to a close. The remaining daylight will swallow whatever is in front of us, little by little dragging this valuable present moment into the past. No matter how much we are trying to hold on to it. And with it, some thoughts and hopes will eventually fade away, too. Laying bare, an increased feeling of melancholy. A sensation so profound, Kevin Morby's new album 'Sundowner' takes us on a journey through those fleeting twilight hours full of magic and tristesse. A spirit of the times hovering above it all.
On October 17, 2000 the short-lasting nu metal hype reached a potential peak when the Jacksonville-based heavyweights released their third full-length and the lines between alternative culture and mainstream pop went full blurry.
