FRIDAY LISTENING // SUUNS Remixed By Archie Pelago

Welcome to Friday – your oneway train to freedom. Soundtrack that ride with the new Suuns remix. Images Du Futur’s “2020″ gets the house treatment from Brooklyn’s Archie Pelago. Stream above or at FACT Magazine, where it premiered earlier today.

“In their hands, ’2020′ becomes a muggy house cut, decorated with jittery horns and treated strings a la The Books.”FACT Magazine

Tour fun! Suuns are playing Le Zaricot tonight with We Are Wolves. See their full list of dates, including SXSW, HERE. You can stay in the know with SUUNS-related tour announcements by checking out the #sctour13 and #scfest13 hashtags on Twitter.

Stream SUUNS’ New Album at AOL Spinner, Band Set to Tour North America & Europe Extensively

The band is soon headed out on tour in support of the new record. Dates include North America and Europe, as well as a much anticipated stint at Austin’s SXSW in just a few weeks. See the full schedule and ticket links HERE.

Early Love for IMAGES DU FUTUR

“The gentle psychedelia of Suuns is perfectly suited to the placid, unsettling visions that vocalist Ben Shemie is singing about here.” -PITCHFORK

“SUUNS is clearly still making music that grabs your insides first and then engages your brain after, just on this one effort, they are doing it in a gentler, more restrained way – like the stroke of a lion’s paw before it unfurls its claws and tears your heart out.” -NOISEY

“…if “Edie’s Dream” is any indication, the foursome will be heading a little deeper down the rabbit hole on their upcoming album, Images Du Futur…Creepy and meditative vocals, delayed guitar, and a spine-tingling sense that some lunatic is patiently waiting around that shadowy corner to stab you in the neck. Fun stuff…” -CHICAGO READER
