"Arena" rocks

chs

Parts of this album are just noisy, but other tracks layer sounds and rhythms in a way that is absolutely hypnotic. I recommend starting with the track "Arena."

Tops in NME Buzz at SXSW 2011

pss

From NME: #1 top buzz at SXSW 2011: Montreal’s headiest muso-nerds bludgeon Austin into submission, one genre at a time. Despite the imposing arsenal of sounds on their debut album, ‘Zeroes QC’ – binding electronic dissonance and rock’n’roll hedonism into something compellingly avant-garde yet giddily fun – no-one is quite prepped for this; live, Suuns are overwhelming.

A great find, Clinic sound notwithstanding

Best tracks, in my humble estimation, are Pie IX, PVC, Sweet Nothing, Up Past The Nursery, and Gaze. Check out the great video for Pie IX.

Surprisingly serious

Hug

A very good record. This band knows perfectly how to mix rock and electronics. The ambiance is dark, serious and sophisticated. I would also add "professional". Though I prefer Gaze, PVC and Organ blues, all of the songs are worth listening. These guys know how to give pleasure with style.

They Say All Music Guide

While trying to form their identity on their Secretly Canadian debut, Suuns get a little lost among their influences. “Marauder” emulates Deerhoof successfully, “Sweet Nothing” is a dedication to Beck that sounds a lot like the man himself (circa The Information), and “Up Past the Nursery” is a dead ringer for a Clinic song complete with Ben Shemie singing through clenched jaw to get that surgical mask effect. Their full-length even ends with a cover (of Tyrannosaurus Rex, which to be fair, is pretty good). Even if the newly formed Canadian quartet is still searching for its individuality, when Suuns’ strengths come together — as they often do on Zeroes QC — the mix of sparse beats, razor-wire guitar, and downer melodies can be compelling. The minor-key-inflected “PVC” and “Gaze” are among their most gleaming and rocking songs. Notably, the group thrives in a sparse environment, and the simple, open-aired electric guitar and vocal wash of “Fear” is surprisingly lovely. – Jason Lymangrover
