This record was released by Community Records. Taking its name from the Henry Miller novel that focuses on a starving writer in the early 20th century, Sun Hotel’s “Tropic Of Cancer” acutely captures the existential dread that fills that book and all other musings of the condition of the modern artist. “It’s so much better to hate yourself than to love somebody else for no reason,” Tyler Scurlock sings reluctantly, later flipping the same mantra on its head in the second half of the song: “It’s so much easier to love yourself than to hate somebody else for no reason…” The song does a lot with pauses, teasing out silence to draw out a mood of regret — it’s a soft and unassuming track about comparing yourself with others and constantly feeling like you’re falling short.
