Apply here for ambitious musicians projecting slacker vibes and playing precisely sloppy variants of indie rock—mostly surf, garage, pop (I’ll let you add your own hyphens)—and doing it well. Sonny Smith and his Sunsets come to us from San Francisco. When not playing bittersweet love songs, the band does these weird and wacky narrative numbers that balance goofiness with gravity. “Well but Strangely Hung Man,” the single from their latest album, Moods Baby Moods (Polyvinyl), is about a guy who saves trapped miners and stops a riot using his particularly large Johnson. The song both is and is not as juvenile as you’re thinking it is. RICH SMITH
