Sunday's Best
Poised to Break
Oct 24, 2000

All formats include instant MP3 download.

After an EP on Crank! and a 7" on Better Looking Records, Sunday's Best released Poised to Break, its debut full-length, on Polyvinyl in 2000. The album is an eclectic ten song diary, simultaneously quixotic yet personal.

Members have since gone on to form The Bronx (James Tweedy) and The Little Ones (Ed Reyes and Ian Moreno).

In Music We Trust

You know how sometimes a song can awaken a long forgotten memory or make you reminisce about parts of your life? Like a half forgotten childhood summer. That's this entire CD.
