"Sunset" is what singer-songwriter Bill Baird calls himself when he wants to make some lush, home-recorded psych pop. His new record is good. It's full of fuzzy guitars solos, pianos, and his Beck-esque baritone. If you need psych, then you'll like.

We also have a couple tracks from the new Animal Collective EP, Fall Be Kind. "What Do I want? Sky" is the first song to legally license a Grateful Dead sample. That's insane.

We're also sporting a couple cuts from the new F Buttons album, Tarot Sport. If the end of the world had to be soundtracked, and the soundtrack had to be electronic, then this album would be in the top-three releases to consider.
