Buzzing out of Brooklyn, baroque pop maestros SUCKERS make their Empty Bottle debut here tonight. Their recently released sophomore LP for French Kiss Records, Candy Salad, explodes with catchy pop songs filled with echoing synths, soothing guitar riffs, uplifting group chants and harmonies, horns, keys, programmed beats, good old-fashioned whistling and other assorted happy noises. SPIN praised the effort as sounding “blithely eager to please,” and Pitchfork claims “everyone’s singing and everyone’s clapping and everyone sounds to be having the best time” – we can’t wait to have the best time ever with these guys too. TURN TO CRIME, the solo project of former AWESOME COLOR vocalist/guitarist DEREK STANTON, opens with tracks from his debut LP TTC. The tracks are simplistic yet big and booming with expansive lo-fi psych rock explorations and during live performances TTC sings and plays guitar and synth along to music and video art mixed down to VHS and pumped through a wall of amps and a projector.
