Suuns is nothing if not atmospheric. Their music has always toyed with the psychedelic and seems often to be the very definition of experimental. Their newest album Hold/Still is no exception, though perhaps it’s grooves are more solid then one would expect. The true glory of the band comes when they play live – with their swirling sounds easily filling up every room they play. We asked the band to let us know what they listen to as they get ready to go out on tour, and when they’re in the van, and what they came back with is a road trip playlist perfect for anyone. Check out the band’s playlist below and make sure to see them when they come to your town.
1. Cass McCombs – Bum Bum Bum
Good for all occasions in the van.
2. Here We Go Magic – Over the Ocean
Another timeless number.
3. Jenny Hval – Conceptual Romance
Conceptual Romance, what else is there to say?
4. The Tragically Hip – Grace Too
Shout out to our teen years and Canadian content.
5. Total Control – The Ferryman
6. The Smiths – Frankly, Mr Shankly
7. Demdike Stare – Curzon
Heavy dark beats
8. Frank Ocean – Nikes
9. Babyfather – Deep
Instrumental jam on this most stellar record of last year.

Strange days are here.
