Tonight local postpunks Disappears headline an audio-visual experience at the Garfield Park Conservatory during which the band and the opening acts will be performing along to video projections throughout the different greenhouses of the museum. Today’s 12 O’Clock Track comes from Disappears’ direct support for the night, Montreal’s Suuns. It’s called “2020” and it’s from their second record for Secretly Canadian, Images Du Futur. It’s a woozy, spacey jam, propelled by a droney, bassy throb and a fractured disco beat—its repetitive, psychedelic, down-and-out vibe should be the perfect compliment to a mind-expanding episode in the desert room of the conservatory. It’s got a sort of antipop bent to it and a meandering, atonal mess of a lead-guitar riff; its jarring tone sharply contrasts the smeared, drugged-out vocals.
The track is great and would be so much fun if it didn’t use a bum-out mood to move it along. Check out “2020” below, and don’t miss this excellent, brain-fried postpunk act live this evening.
