When acidjack recorded Suuns in January at Rock Shop, he noted the versatility of the band and the “controlled intensity” that the band brings to each song. By December, when I recorded their show at Webster Hall opening for The Antlers, Sunns seem to have perfected that approach. In one of the best-received opening sets we’ve seen in quite some time, Suuns began with the new 12″ b-side “Red Song” (streaming below), which presaged the compelling tension and release of the post-rock they delivered in spades. The balance of the setlist included much of their excellent 2010 release Zeroes QC (Secretly Canadian Records) and one new song. We expect that the continued development of this talented and imaginative quartet will bring to them to larger stages and audiences — it won’t be long before they’ll play Webster again as the headliner.
I recorded this set in the same manner as the Antlers set from the same show, and the sound quality is superb.
