Hold/Still by SUUNS is like jumping into a hot tub filled with bubble wrap. That’s the weirdest analogy I have ever made, but I’ll stick to it. It seems like that would feel good.
I tried to play it in the store where I work, and one woman said, “This is weird music.” She’s right, but you need to have an appreciation for weird to love it. I have an appreciation for weird. This is their third album and I’ll be listening to their previous output. My favorite track from this Canadian band (pronounced soons and is Thai for zeros) is “UN-NO,” which really makes you feel stoned.
I’m not saying that you have to be on drugs to enjoy this music, but it does help. Eat a brownie and get your groove on. And by groove, I mean meditative state of consciousness, because this is some trippy shit.
