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.
The War On Drugs’ sprawling Slave Ambient is out August 16 on Secretly Canadian. Following the release of the instant classic “Baby Missiles” we now share with you the album’s centerpiece “Come to the City” in which head honcho Adam Granduciel takes the show to the next level. It’s a modern American outsider classic; a straight-up jam. All goosebumps and fist pumps; and Granduciel howling and moaning over his epic, phased Firebird guitars.
“Come to the City” also happens to include what very well may be my favorite The War on Drugs lyric: “Drinking up all the sweet tea/It was made/Just for me.” CLAZZIG.
Slave Ambient is also now available for pre-order, the first 75 vinyl orders of which will receive the limited-run oh-so-fancy ruby red LP version of the record (see the sweet pic below). There are also several great War on Drugs catalogue bundle deals. Get it all HERE.
Today we’re happy to welcome New York City duo Exitmusic — comprised of Aleksa Palladino and Devon Church — to the Secretly Canadian roster!
The first recorded output from the band in the form of a chilling song called “The Sea” is debuting now on Pitchfork. Mixing dark, pulsing bass, wailing vocals and swirling washes of sound, “The Sea” is the perfect introduction to Exitmusic’s gorgeous little world.
