While the majority of working class citizens spent their late hours crafting dreams, like any other night shifter, THE IDYLLISTS were
busy plucking away at theirs. The four young, tightly-knit Los Angeleno musicians used the iconic, fast-paced Sunset Boulevard and
many long, late nights as the motivation and inspiration for THE LONG HOURS BETWEEN SUNSET & MORNING. The same
concrete that Charles Bukowski, Jim Morrison, Elvis and millions of other dreamers and believers once strolled through provided the
influential backdrop for British frontman Ian Webber, guitarist Matthew Barge, bassist George Mohler, and drummer Sam Gallagher.
The famous 22-mile boulevard bends through an eclectic mix of lifestyles, cultures, and social statuses that pass through
the gates of
Pacific Palisades, Brentwood, Bel-Air, and Beverly Hills to the back alleys of Los Feliz, Silver Lake, and Echo Park. The album's title,
dedication and musicianship found within are equally pertinent to the sweat and tears exerted from Oxford Street in London, Beale
Street in Memphis, 6th Street in Austin, or Yonge Street in Toronto.
THE LONG HOURS BETWEEN SUNSET & MORNING plays like a throwback to drive-thru movies, Sunliner convertibles, carefree
walks along the water, and romance -- all while maintaining relevance to 2009. The 11-track debut delves into the same life and love
struggles found not only in the glorious days of the 50s and 60s, but also in today's world. The Idyllists not only prove that they
could've been The London Fog house band or found amongst Rodney Bingenheimer's vinyl collection during the 60s, but also a steady
mainstay directly across the street at The Viper Room in modern day 2009.
