We here at Donewaiting realize you have many options when considering what neo-soul acts to listen to, so we thank you in advance for your loyal patronage of Nick Tolford, who trumps them all.
I should also mention that this song is a Kool Blues cover; you can find the original on the very first Numero Group release, Eccentric Soul: The Capsoul Label. It’s fantastic.
Video recorded last Thursday by Reece Thompson at Brett Ruland’s downtown vinyl shop Spoonful Records.
When T.K. Webb came to town, he didn’t waste time forming a band. Sundown initially consisted of Webb, Moons’ Dusty White, Moon High’s Blake Pfister and TV Eye’s Grant Driskell. Then the rhythm section was switched out for Chris Pierce (Main Street Gospel, the Urns) and Vug Arakas (TV Eye, MSG, etc.)
Once Webb and White parted musical ways, Sundown appeared to be over. For all intents and purposes, it was. But after some time off, Webb teamed back up with Pierce and Urns bassist Mike Leach (also of Struck by Lightning). After practicing for more than a month at Pierce’s house in rural Orient, Ohio, Sundown is back with a more stripped-down sound they’ll debut Saturday at Rumba Cafe as a trio; it’s Webb’s first show with a band since May. Expect songs from the Spoonful Records 12-inch Mansion Burning — including “Life’s Too Long,” currently in rotation on CD102.5 — and some new stuff, too.
Red Feathers and Psychic Wheels open.
As we’ve noted, and as you’re likely aware, Saturday is Record Store Day. Here’s everything you should need to navigate RSD in Columbus. Feel free to add any additional relevant info in the comments.

Spoonful Records makes a triumphant return to releasing vinyl with Sundown’s Mansion Burning EP, which is good news if you were unable to snag one of the cassettes and better news if you can’t wait for Record Store Day to buy something that you can flip for mega-bucks on ebay down the road.

Columbus rapper Envelope announced today that he will be celebrating the release of his new EP This Could Go Either Way by touring 8 Columbus Record Stores on October 15th. The stores are listed above.
These shows are free and all ages.
I’ve been calling it the “We Are Coming to You” tour.
This Could Go Either Way is produced by Jacoti Sommes and is being released on Envelope’s new label, Palais Du Pomeroi , a joint venture with Columbus Discount Records’s Adam Smith.
The recording process was really unique and will be explored in the future here on donewaiting.

Nice video of a stripped-down Black Swans performing unreleased track “Don’t Blame the Stars” at Spoonful Records, a new record store in downtown Columbus (insert most recent “Vinyl makes a comeback!” newspaper story here).
