Suuns

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 synth'. In addition 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. We were enveloped in Suuns’ dark and thrilling post-punk from the first listen, never to return.

Band Members Include:

Ben Shemie [ vocals, guitar ] Joe Yarmush [ guitar, bass ] Liam O'Neill [ drums ] and Max Henry [ bass, keyboards ]

SUUNS‘ new album Images Du Futur was written in the time of the student protests in Quebec (February – September 2012). And it is exactly this spirit they set to music. Somewhere between joy, hope and frustration, SUUNS managed to record a lot of feelings and emotions and make songs our of it. And with this the band grew up to an act that is more than serious. Images Du Futur is even more intense than their debut album Zeroes QC, just by using new patterns and even being even more dynamic. So is for example SUUNS‘ masterpiece Edie’s Dream which roots on just one bass line. An intelligent and at the same time naked and delicate approach to write songs. Cautious but still demanding. Direct but still indirect. Simply intelligent and genius.

The album’s opener, Powers Of Ten, will bring pictures to your mind that you will soon see as “the album’s manifest”: “got ir together / I read in the paper ( all of these strangers / stranger and stranger… / no, no. no. no. how you try and remember / how all of these pieces / all fir together.” Frontman Ben Shemie told that SUUNS as a band always try to watch their music from far away to see more details, while in front of them new landscapes open up. Without any doubt, Images Du Futur is SUUNS strongest release, that definitely managed to keep the spirit of the student protests in Quebec. An amazing album that hovers between understatement and ingenuousness.

Review of "Burial Songs" by Palehorse/Palerider

In order to excel in the independent music industry, an act has to define itself as especially unique with a sound quite unlike anything else in the community. This is a tall order, one that isn’t easily filled by acts entering variations of rock music due to the immense amount of bands flooding the scene right now. Palehorse/Palerider, a “doomgaze” trio from Denver, has released an EP entitled ‘Burial Songs’ that does a surprisingly superb job at separating itself from the pack. Let’s delve into it.

Review for "I Want to Stand Where the Sun Himself Shakes with Fear" by Voices from Deep Below

Even though the independent rock scene is quite inundated with new acts, there’s always a welcome place for an outfit that changes the formula enough to be consistently interesting and worth taking notice of. The New York-based alternative rock group Voices from Deep Below attempts to do just that, fusing together a variety of styles into a surprisingly coherent sound. Their new record, “I Want to Stand Where the Sun Himself Shakes with Fear”, is a five song album that navigates alt-rock, experimental, and borderline metal and progressive influences all at the same time.
