Suuns @ Mercury Lounge, 4/15/2013
Suuns

Montreal's Suuns are about ready to hit the road with their neighbors Besnard Lakes (whose Jace Lasek produced their new LP, Images Du Futur). Before that, though, the band are warming up with a few headlining shows, like last night (4/15) at NYC's Mercury Lounge. The band's sinister take on Kraut and prog really takes off live in a way that their records haven't quite conveyed, due in large part to how frontman Ben Shemie intensely twists himself around his guitar and microphone onstage. Pictures from last night's show are in this post.

Suuns' time with Besnard Lakes ends before that band's NYC show at Bowery Ballroom on May 3 (tickets), as Suuns will be heading to Europe for shows. All dates are listed, along with more pictures from Mercury Lounge, below.
