Suuns, Rose Windows 

When: Sun., May 26, 9 p.m. 2013
Price: $10
You may remember the Montreal-based art rockers Suuns, whose 2010 debut, Zeroes QC, was a blatant homage to their favorites: Beck, Clinic, Deerhoof, and T. Rex. On their second album, Images du Futur, they have honed their sound, specifically to Deerhoof-meets-Clinic—so much so that Clinic fans have taken to the internet to register their disapproval. But assuming that Suuns are coming from a place of sincere fandom (which I think is the case), Images du Futur is easy to like in a dreamily electronic, possibly depressed kind of way. Not being a music-maker myself, I find it easy to relate to bands (Foxygen, Suuns) that wear their influences on their sleeves. Hey! I like those bands too! This is endearing to a certain extent. But Suuns are a talented, if emotionally distant band and now it's time they find a voice all their own. REBECCA WILSON
