The Montreal quartet Suuns is clearly wound up tight on their new Secretly Canadian EP, Zeroes—rumbling guitars click together like a proggy jigsaw puzzle, and singer Ben Shemie's unhinged whispering sounds like the confessions of a dude on a shrink's devan. It's nothing particularly trendy right—unless you count the pervasive half-time high hat, this is not the kind of squall we've been accustomed to since maybe mid-'90s Chicago was the place to be—which makes it that much more delicious. So what's happening in French Canada right now that makes Suuns so blistering and thick? Post-industrialist malaise? Pre-secession frustration? Favorite poutine spot closed down? Sorry about all this, dudes, but your angst is our pleasure. Grab it here, keep a look out for the full-length folks at Secretly Canadian are dropping this Fall.
