Album Review: Suuns and Jerusalem In My Heart

The best collaboration projects seem to happen effortlessly.

Album Review: Suuns – Images Du Futur

Montreal experimental band Suuns have grown in leaps and bounds in the last couple years. No doubt, their debut LP Zeroes QC was a solid entry point, with a clever mixture of noise and pop and a good sampling through the various electronic derivations of alternative rock we’ve seen in the last 20 years orRead more…
