Album Review: The Ruby Suns, "Fight Softly" by Chase
New Zealand based band (mostly the solo project of Ryan McPhun) continues to expand their joyful sound, this time with a move towards electronics. This is definitely an immersive experience with some excellent sonic texture. If you liked “Merriweather Post Pavilion” but wanted a little bit more in terms of [slightly more] conventional structure/killer hooks, this is a record for you. It’s an early-summer record, if you will.
