Sister Suvi - Now I Am Champion (2009)

One of the best albums I've listened to this year. Here's a description from P4K.

"The 'Montoronto'-based trio brings a raft of influences to their first full-length, Now I Am Champion, and it takes a couple of listens to enjoy all its strengths. The first impression, from singles like the breakneck 'The Lot' or Zeppelin-esque 'Golden', is of an off-kilter indie rock act. The production is raw but muddy, and when the songs get loud-- and all of them do-- the guitars smear and the vocals can be a blur. But then you catch the stellar bass lines (by both Gregoire and Garbus), the groovy shimmy of 'Desolation', and the jazz/reggae rhythm and psychotic lyrics of 'American'. The three-part harmonies are brash but complex, and Dann’s drum parts are relentlessly fascinating. And Garbus sports a uke, but she never treats it gently: The amplification makes it an aggressive lead instrument, and it also sounds great bowed, as on 'Longlegs'."

  6. dear samuel davis jr II,

    this is pat suvi writing. maybe i am a blogger re-re, but it seems to me it should somehow be easier to contact you. but after five minutes of clicking around like an asshole i am just going to leave a note in the bottle comment and hope it arrives intact.

    all that to say, glad you're feeling "nowchamp". but the suv's no more and got sold off for scrap now.

    one of the hunks is my new solo projie. the record is called FUTURE songs and it's a PWYC download. please enjoy...
