We’re proud to present the debut Fool’s Gold release from our first band, The Suzan! Starting today you can pick up “Home” (with b-side “Uh Ah”) on iTunes and colored vinyl 7″ single wrapped front to back in psychedelic sleeve art from Dust La Rock. Preview it as RCRD LBL’s “RCRD Of The Day”:
In case you missed their irresistible performances at our CMJ and SXSW showcases, here’s the deal: The Suzan are a boundlessly energetic all-girl band from Japan with a knack for melding jangly, unconventional melodies and keyboard grooves into a sound all their own. Their unique charm and sweetly funky, hard-to-pin-down pop has captivated Bjorn Yttling of Peter, Bjorn and John – who they convinced to be their producer with a MySpace message! – and everyone else they encounter, from The Fader (“Full-on hyperactive bopping around the dancefloor steez.”) to Perez Hilton (“These girls are so adorable… will put a smile on your face!”)
“Home” sets the stage for The Suzan’s full-length LP, Golden Week For The Poco Poco Beat, out this fall on Fool’s Gold / Downtown. It’s effervescent, moody, and (if we humbly say so) one of the best albums of the year! But don’t take our word for it, come check them rocking the free Jelly Pool Party on 8/22 at East River Park in Brooklyn, an all-Fool’s Gold family affair with Chromeo, Kid Sister, Telephoned and more also performing.
