The Ruby Suns’ Fight Softly is one of the most anticipated albums around the record store. We were one-by-one swayed over to their debut’s charms and have spent the past few years awaiting the follow up. Now we’ve got a first listen to the upcoming record and it looks like it’s going to be even better than we’d hoped.
MP3: Ruby Suns – Cranberry
There’s a strong Panda Bear influence on this track. And of course, that sentence is only a bad thing when the song is bad. There’s really no such thing as too much sun-drenched, psychedelic pop. “Cranberry” keeps in line with the Ruby Suns’ tradition of tropicalia, but adds in a little extra synth to bring the sum up to closer to what they sound like live rather than on their last record.
