Suran Song in Stag
You hear another female singer almost every day, but it's a rare and happy occasion when you discover a new voice. Suran Song has a voice that could melt steel (or the stoniest man's heart,) the kind of voice that breaths life and emotion into even the most pedestrian lyrics. She is ably accompanied by a talented ensemble that includes Dave Urbano on strummy rhythm guitar, Bil Weis on extra-melodic bass, and Jason Reynolds on drums. Live, they embellish the already-beguiling music with a psychedelic multi-media onslaught that includes slides and video. Amazing. The album-length cassette was produced by Ween's Claude Coleman at his Stony Brook studio. New Brunswick's renaissance continues with yet another original and talented band added to an already overheated scene.
