Suuns @ The Rock Shop in January (more by Benjamin Lozovsky)
Suuns

It's Canadian two-fer at Mercury lounge tonight (10/7) with Montreal's Suuns and Kingston, Ontario's PS I Love You. It's a late show after a Robbers on High Street record release party (Suuns doors are 10:15PM) and tickets are still available (a Nirvana tribute band also plays a free show after them, at the same venue - doors at 1am for that one). Both bands play Boston tomorrow night. All dates are listed below.

Suuns have a new 12" single, "Bambi/Red," coming out November 15 on Secretly Canadian and you can stream both sides at the bottom of this post. Says the band:

With a couple weeks off this summer in Montreal, we thought we'd take a crack at a few new songs. Stark and futuristic, these are extended jams that may or may not materialize as condensed versions of themselves on records to come. Open air textures, repetition and exploration were the name of the game for us on this one, and the finished product is a refined mining of the ideas that came out. "Bambi" is a creepy story of love lost and found, while "Red Song" is just that: a song about color.
If you wished Suuns debut, Zeroes QC, had more electronic-leaning tracks like "Area" (downloadable above), you're going to like this new single. "Bambi" is screaming for a full-on dancefloor remix.

As for PS I Love You, the band just released Figure it Out, a compilation of early singles, covers (Madonna, Rush) and other leftover tracks like their colaboration with Diamond Rings, "Leftovers," which you can download above. Diamond Rings, by the way, opens for Twin Shadow at Webster Hall tonight -- maybe he'll zip on over after his set to play with PS I Love You? We'll see.

The stream of the new Suuns 12" is below, along with tour dates.

Gotta type this somewhere. Suuns at mercury lounge was maybe the crappiest show I've ever seen (I was there for PS I Love You). No melody, not a single interesting musical idea, meandering and boring songs. And by far the douchiest stage moves I have ever seen - tortured rebel posing. Disgusting.

PSILU, by contrast - 100% no bullshit rock.
