The Ruby Suns-Sea Lion



If Paul Simon, New Order, and Panda Bear got together and made an album with Brian Wilson as the producer it might sound something like this. From California by way of New Zealand, The Ruby Suns bring a lot to the table on their 2008 sophmore album, Sea Lion. This is kaleidoscopic pop music at its best with so many ideas buzzing around to form this warm dreamy juxaposition. With elements ranging from afro-pop (Tane Mahuta), 80s synth rock (Kenya Dig It?), all the way up to dream pop (It's Mwangi in Front of Me) Sea Lion is sure to take you on a global psychedelic journey in sound. Sit back, pretend it's summertime (it is in New Zealand) and just listen to There Are Birds straight through to Kenya Dig It? for an evocative sampling of what this band has to offer. Keep you eyes peeled for their follow up album, Fight Softly, to hit the market in March.
