Sometime Sweet Susan weren't shy about pushing their collective distortion pedals to the metal, so to speak. A sinewy amalgamation of quasi dream-pop and the kind of distortion-ridden sprawl Sonic Youth were wont to lay out circa 1990, SSS left a rather indifferent public with two eps, and just as many albums before dissolving into the ether by the mid-90s. Nearly three years ago I shared the group's Fuse long-player and Point ep, their two most representative recordings. This single features "Kendall" from the ep, along with the slow-burning non-LP flipside "Tilt-a-Whirl." That latter track firmly subscribes to dissonant, quiet/loud/quiet aesthetics, mildly hinting at Slint and Rodan. I apologize in advance for the annoying vinyl static.
