Biography

Montreal's Suuns spent the winter and spring of 2012 writing and recording Images du Futur. Their sessions were concurrent with the Quebec student protests that started in February of 2012 and continued through September of this year. Set against a backdrop lead singer Ben Shemie calls "a climate of excitement, hope and frustration," Suuns aimed for an expansion of the musical ... Read more in Amazon's Suuns Store

4.0 out of 5 stars Snapshots Of Restraint 5 Mar 2013
By Gannon
Format:Audio CD
After their rather impressive debut, it was always going to be interesting to see where Canadian four-piece Suuns went with their Clinic-like motorik minimalism and general disregard for genre boundaries. It's pleasing to report then that on Images Du Futur Ben Shemie and band have avoided the temptation to channel the quasi-commercial appeal that "Arena" threatened on the debut, instead delving deep into dreamy ambience whilst still letting their indie-kraut template do the talking when required.

Coming on strong, Images Du Futur thus opens with two of the finest tracks likely to be heard this year - the first of which is also the noisiest that the LP has to offer. Trying in vain to disguise its ticking heartbeat with squalling guitar and a thoroughly clenched vocal, "Powers Of Ten" is full of post-punk tension and is truly excellent. Its immediate neighbour however - the striking "2020" - starts life as little more than a sinister creep dripping in bent guitar effects until a fuzzy beat and bass undercurrent step in to accompany Shemie's whispery lyrics.

This arty marriage of restrained noise, dreamy beats and percussive atmosphere sets the tone for the remainder of the album, yet - as per its predecessor Zeroes QC- expect deviations. The snarling feedback that introduces "Mirror Mirror", for example, then gives way to a vintage psyche-rock stomp decorated with fluttery synth arpeggios all delivered with a decidedly indie bent. The rhythmic post-punker "Bambi" is flat-out defined by its harsh snare cracks and meandering guitar echo, whereas the melodic synth buzz of "Minor Work" is given curious choral texture thanks to backing vocals.

4.0 out of 5 stars Transfixing. 29 April 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
As with many of my purchases these days, I bought the CD album because of hearing one track (2020).

This is a great album that requires listening to several times before it takes shape. My one slight criticism is that some tracks, 2020 included, could have been longer and more developed. It's almost like getting not enough of a good thing!

5.0 out of 5 stars GROOVY 15 Mar 2013
By Wumoo - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This album is part psychedelic rock and part something else. I can't describe it, and I'm not sure if it can be. It's like a full on audio blitzkrieg. There is so much going on in every song it just blows my mind. The songs start off with a good rhythm. It's all nice and simple, and then wonderful things start happening. Vocals, guitar, bass, drums, keyboards, and random noises are all layered perfectly together. A couple of the songs are reminiscent of The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn (Pink Floyd). Some of that awesome, old timey psychedelic music. Some of the songs are softer, and more subtle. Some of them bring that heavy bass. All of the songs have a different feel to them, but come together to form a great album, which will keep it entertaining for a long time. I've only listened to it a few times, but it has the potential to be one of my favorite albums. I don't know much about the Suuns, except for the fact that they are Canadian, and great musicians. This is their 2nd album I believe. But it's the first one I've listened to. I would say anyone who is a fan of music would love this album. It may or may not make it into your top tier albums, but either way it's a MUST BUY. I'll probably be still be listening to it when I'm 70(If I live that long).
Seriously though, check it out.

4.0 out of 5 stars a disparate powerhouse of electronic sounds and rhythmic punch 9 April 2013
By Charlie Quaker - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
2nd release from Montreal, Canada band is a disparate powerhouse of electronic sounds and
rhythmic punch that's welded into a throbbing, psychedelic amalgamation of heady dance-floor
dream-noise structures. "Images Du Futur" is filled with fluid, viscous sounds that move from
dark guitar roars to post-disco Krautrock to atmospheric soundwave bounce-pop. Something
like Spacemen 3 and Last Remaining Pinnacle on the edge of clubland, while Radiohead and
Clinic watch from the sidelines.

5.0 out of 5 stars 2nd Suuns beats the 1st 22 Mar 2013
By Frances Angel - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Suuns' debut album contains some tracks that are still on my high rotation playlist ('Up past the nursery' is one of the best haunting tracks of the past five years), so expectations were high for the new album. And it doesn't disappoint! In fact, the band has a more coherent sound on 'Images du Futur' and it still contains the trademark combination of beats, electronics, shoegaze and the odd-but-highly-effective singing of Ben Shemie. Check out 'Edie's Dream', '2020' and 'Music won't save you' to get a good impression. Great album!
5.0 out of 5 stars EPIC 7 Mar 2014
By David P. Weber - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I listened to this album for ages and couldn't work out why it didn't make it into many Best Of lists at the end of the year.. it's got a unique pallor, when I hear it, I think of music being made by aliens who live on rocky, desert-like planets barren of vegetation.

Somehow this band escaped my notice until a month ago. They have a great sound and this album will not disappoint. Buy it. You'll be glad you did.
