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

Editorial Reviews

Images du Futur builds upon the intensity of Suuns' 2010 debut, but often does so through new textures and subtler dynamic maneuvering. Album standout "Edie's Dream" begins with a single bass line repeated from which layers build & rise first drums, then a wash of white noise; echoes of guitar, then chanted vocals. The song's clever shifts are jazz-touched and delicate, almost subliminal. It all makes for a stark, skeletal boogie more an astral projection than a song.

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.

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.

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!

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.
