“Antenna to the Afterworld may have all the dressings of science fiction and fantasy, but like many great works in those genres, it’s a strong, emotive character study. He might’ve replaced the cowboy hat with a spaceman’s helmet, but Sonny Smith still writes like a country balladeer.” -Pitchfork
“Sonny Smith’s endlessly prolific San Francisco psychpop band Sonny & The Sunsets crank out loopy, fun, lofi tunes at scary rates” -Stereogum
