California

New album: 333

Chad Ubovich (frontman): “Here in America, we’re watching the fall
of U.S. capitalism, and 333 is a cartoonish representation of that decline.”

Turn Up The Volume: A wall-of-fuzzing-and-buzzing guitar rock.
No wonder Ubovich plays with the equally fuzzing and fuzzing Ty

Montreal’s Other-Wordly Rockers SUUNS Back With Hypnotizing EP

16 November 2020

After their outlandish 2018 album Felt Montreal’s puzzling
art-rockers return with a new 6-track EP called FICTION.

Every time I hear Suuns images of science-fiction movies pop up on my film
screen in my head. Check tracks Look, Death and Trouble Every Day and
you’ll find out what I mean. Be ready for some close encounters of the third
kind.

My standout piece is PRAY. A spooky jam with a Kraftwerk-like intro and echoing
vocals. As the multi-layered groove goes on and synths have a fight with chainsaw
guitars you can feel the tension growing. Spine-chilling, nightmarish and eldritch.
I love it!

Pray here…

11 January 2018

Psychedelic Montreal rockers SUUNS will release their new, fourth album, titled FELT on
2 March and they just launched the first single with a dazzling clip. The jungle-like drums and pumped up synths on WATCH YOU, WATCH ME roar unstoppably while an agitated vocoder voice tries to find its way through the speedy trip. Quite spectacular and highly adrenalizing. So is the accompanying video. Your eyes’ pupils will not be able to absorb
the crushing avalanche of collages of people’s faces in real-time. Experience the R.E.M. causing images here…
