New music: Suckers’ ‘Candy Salad’
Candy Salad, the new album by Suckers, takes so many twists and turns it’s hard to really define the totality of the record. Candy Salad starts off strong with the big song, Nowhere, followed by the ultra-poppy Figure it Out, the synth-heavy Bricks to the Bones, and the intriguing, folky Chinese Braille. About midway through the album I get a little bored. But it’s a catchy, cool record that deserves multiple listens.
Suckers are a quirky and original band, and, on their second full-length release, they’re a little more polished, which I don’t think takes anything away from their likability. You can catch them at Empty Bottle on Saturday.
