Two out of Three Ain't Bad!

Well, the week is nearly out and I didn't manage to make three announcements like I hoped at the beginning of the week, but just sneeking in is the second, and we all know what Meatloaf had to say about that ratio.

I'm please to announce our first co-pro, with fellow ex-Freebutt cohorts OIB Records. Headlining are Suuns, who hail from Montreal, Canada and released their debut album 'Zeroes QC' on the ever reliable Secretly Canadian label (BLK JKS, Antony & The Johnsons, The War On Drugs etc). Suuns have no doubt ingested a lot of art rock, the Montreal group’s minimalist rhythms are equally informed by Joy Division, Suicide and Can, often wrapped in a noisy squall of droning guitars and pulsing synths. Add to this Ben Shemie’s breathy, paranoid sing/speak, and there are times that it seems like Suuns are about to drive over a sonic cliff. But there’s actually a great sense of restraint at play.

I've put some serious listening time in with this band and am thoroughly excited about this show!
