Sunspots: If you pulled the rusting factories, odd urban centers, and dairy farms of Connecticut into a sound, you’d come close to a band like Sunspots. The Hartford-based band started writing songs in the Summer of 2009. They recorded a handful of these songs in a converted factory mill, and have since developed into one of best live bands in the blossoming Hartford music scene. They maintain a rigorous performing schedule across the Northeast and recently venturing southward across the Eastern seaboard on their Winter 2010 tour.

The group is known for their combination of sun-soaked, richly harmonized arrangements with moments of no-stranger-to-the-Companion-Fuzz guitar rock (often drawing comparisons to "Summerteeth"-era Wilco or Steve Malkmus). While maintaining projects outside the band ranging from experimental music groups to rhythm-and-blues bands, Kevin, Fredo, Matt, and Charlie are returning back to the studio (this time enjoying the ghosts and hallway reverb of a loaned decrepit Hartford mansion), the group's first self-produced, full-length album will be released in April 2011.

Wasn't there already a band called The Cunning Stunts or something?
