If you’ve had life kick you in the nether-region this past week (or for me, this past month), then you could probably use a hell of a good show to get your head back on straight. One of my favorite bands to have covered on Left Bank (I know, I know, we aren’t supposed to pick favorites) is doing a show tomorrow night in Brooklyn and this post is to let you know that you can come hang with me, and them, and other cool kids.
The Montreal-based band SUUNS (signed to Secretly Canadian) will be releasing and selling a limited-edition split 7’’ with Blonde Redhead, which is limited to 300 copies and only available tomorrow at the show (or on their Bandcamp). They will also be playing new music, but it’s my sincerest hope that they also play Felt in its entirety. But, I’m not one to tell people what to do.
The band is a seductive mix of 90’s post-punk bass lines wrapped in Thom Yorke-esque vocals, with totally danceable synths. It’s everything a tortured soul could want on a Saturday night.
They’ve released four studio albums—including FELT which is a goddamned masterpiece—and word on the street is they are working on new music, returning to their beloved local facility Breakglass Studios (where they cut their first two albums) but this time recording themselves at their own pace.
All that to say, it’s going to be a massive good time, French may be spoken, and if nothing else you can experience Suuns (and Preservation) in the flesh. The show is tomorrow night at The Sultan Room (234 Starr St, Brooklyn) and tickets are available here. I will be accepting free drinks.
“Some people might think of the material … I like that that could be misconstrued. Also it’s to have felt and not to feel – a little introspective, but that feeling’s in the past.”–Suuns singer/guitarist Ben Shemie
