Suuns Announce New 12″ – Bambi b/w Red Song

Suuns – Bambi b/w Red Song
Following last year’s release of their full length Zeroes QC and a successful round of touring, Suuns will put out a duo of new songs on 12″ this fall. The new tracks, “Bambi” and “Red Song” fit smoothly into the Montreal outfit’s oeuvre of dancefloor-friendly post-punk noir. yvynyl has premiered both tracks.

The band explains, “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.” The disc will be available on Secretly Canadian on November 15.

You can also watch video of the band performing “Red Song” live in Montreal this past weekend here.

Gardens & Villa’s Debut LP Streaming Now at Yours Truly


According to all things Twitter, Tumblr and beyonder, Santa Barbara’s Gardens & Villa has tickled the fancy of the masses — unexpectedly, in many cases — whilst on the band’s North American tour with Foster the People. We too found ourselves under the band’s heavy spell at a recent Chicago appearance. You can say it’s coastal, new wave pop, and that would be absolutely true. I mean, we’ve said that very phrase ourselves. But it’s simultaneously ceremonial and huge-feeling. It’s joyous, but it’s weighty when you least suspect. They also have a stencil of Michael Jackson on their bass amp, and they end the whole live set with a ripping, near-Krautrock version of Gary Numan’s “Cars.”

G&V’s self-titled Secretly Canadian debut is out July 5 (Pre-order HERE or HERE). But today through release day, Yours Truly is hosting a full-stream of the record. From the opening synth pulses of “Black Hills” through the closing tribal flute ceremony of “Neon Dove,” the record is front-to-back excellence. It catwalks the exciting line between stark-pop songcraft and rain forest lushness.

LISTEN TO GARDENS & VILLA VIA YOURS TRULY

Gardens & Villa are merely just beginning a season of touring. They will traverse North American twice over, touring with Generationals, Craft Spells and Foster the People. See all those dates HERE.
