Premiere: Loose Sutures – “Sunny Cola”
Something to sip on when you’re in a fuzzy haze of… tunes.
There’s a certain charm to getting together with some friends on a weekend and wasting a day watching old 70s B-Horror/Exploitation movies while getting drunk and/or stoned together. The movies were easy to mock (and Mystery Science Theater always did it better than we could), but there was also a certain kind of affection that came from chuckling at the absurdity of this kind of thing. Sunny Cola, the third single off Loose Sutures’s A Gash with Sharp Teeth and Other Tales taps right into that feeling for me.
The track alternates between the stifling feeling of being crushed (or couch-locked) that stoner doom like Electric Wizard thrives on and a sound that’s more groove-driven with meandering solos dancing around the bassline – something that felt, in my gut, more akin to Jefferson Airplane and their weirdo 60’s ilk. It’s a combo I’ve had the munchies for ever since I discovered bands like Kyuss and then discovered they’d broken up. Sometimes fuzz-drowned and heavy, sometimes almost danceable, and always intriguingly weird, Loose Sutures are here to scratch that same itch on Sunny Cola.
