On Repeat: Suckers – Get Your Body Moving


Founding members of Suckers, multi-instrumentalists and cousins Quinn Walker and Austin Fisher grew up together in a small fishing village in Conneticut but eventually relocated to New York where they recruited a friend Pan (another multi-instrumentalist) and drummer/keyboardist Brian Aitken. The four-piece are now very much immersed in the Brooklyn scene and in 2008 they released debut double album ‘Laughter’s An Asshole/Lion Land’ on CocoRosie’s label Voodoo-Eros. Subsequently the band garnered some rave reviews and support slots for the likes of fellow Brooklynites: MGMT, Kyp Malone (TV On The Radio) Chairlift and Yeasayer whose guitarist Anand Wilder produced the new Suckers EP.

Musically they have psychedelic, surfy and campfire singalong vibes all thrown into one big warm, euphoric buzz. The original version of ‘Get Your Body Moving’ is featured on the band’s new ‘Suckers EP’ which isn’t currently due a release over here but you can grab it on import from the wonderful Insound below. The mp3 I’ve posted is their beautifully relaxed ‘alternate version’. Kick back and enjoy.

For Fans Of: Animal Collective (Campfire Songs era), Flaming Lips, My Morning Jacket (earlier releases).
