Suuns 'Hold/Still' LP (Coloured Vinyl Pressing)
• ‘Hold/Still’, the third studio album from Suuns, is an enigmatic thing: an eerily beautiful, meticulously played suite of music that embraces opposites and makes a virtue of cognitive dissonance.
• It is a record that does not give up its secrets easily. The 11 songs within are simultaneously psychedelic but austere; sensual but cold; organic but electronic; tense sometimes to the brink of mania but always retaining perfect poise and control.
• With Grammy-winning producer John Congleton at the helm, Suuns’ sonic cornerstones have become heavier, more penetrating, nearly tactile.
• ‘Hold/Still’ exists at the intersection of Throbbing Gristle’s ‘20 Jazz Funk Greats’ and ‘Kid A’ by Radiohead. The album is proof as to why Suuns absolutely deserve to be listed next to the names of dark groove adventurers like Andy Stott, Forest Swords, Arca and Haxan Cloak.
• Follow up album to Suuns’ 2013 critically acclaimed ‘Images Du Futur’, which was longlisted for the 2013 Polaris Music Prize in Canada.
