BLACK VINYL LP.
"The latest from the gothic avant-rock band sees the four-piece loosen up and let slip the forces begging for release since their debut. The Montreal four-piece Suuns write smoldering music that’s painstakingly assembled. They are philosopher-musicians, schooled in free jazz, no wave, IDM, and German motorik, and their records are studies in contrasts: Confrontationally limp, seductively bleak, synthetically punk. They are puritanical Dionysians, filling the air with gyrating, charcoal-dim fever dreams built by technocrats—perhaps they even smoked cigarettes before their peers and carried tattered copies of Camus from cafes to rehearsal spaces in the gothic Quebec twilight. This image is an absurd grab for context, sure, but the band’s fixations feel of a piece with it: Suuns (pronounced “soons”) are careful synthesists who, since 2007, have cultivated a sound that’s existential and sinister yet resonantly human."
