you look real funny
Ed Droste of Grizzly Bear first told me about SSION (pronounced "shun") when he guest-DJ'ed our Sirius Blog Radio show a few weeks back. He was extremely enthusiastic about "Clown," taken from SSION's upcoming LP, Fool's Gold. Anyway, I totally forgot about the song until it popped up on shuffle over the weekend, and I couldn't help nodding my head to the campy, sort of out-there electro-disco jam. After listening to a few more songs from the band on their myspace page, I found myself at a loss to describe their bizarre style, so I will defer to the Chicago Reader, who says SSION is "like a no-budget Fischerspooner by way of Hee Haw." Not sure what that even means, but it's kind of appropriate.
Hear more SSION on myspace.
