Spencer Krug of the critically hailed Montreal band Wolf Parade (as well as part time Frog Eyes member) leads Sunset Rubdown, intended to be an additional outlet for Krug's songwriting and slightly more experimental than Wolf Parade. Krug released the first Sunset Rubdown album, Snake's Got a Leg, as a solo work in July 2005. It wasn't long until he assembled a full band featuring Jordan Robson Cramer, Mike Doerkson, and former Pony Up! member Camilla Wynne Ingr. Following a self-titled EP, this lineup released Sunset Rubdown's second long-player, Shut Up I Am Dreaming, in May 2006 on Absolutely Kosher. It was followed in 2007 by Random Spirit Lover.
