Sister Suvi

Now I Am Champion, (Common Cloud)



Toronto-Montreal three-piece Sister Suvi is all over the map, but that's a good thing. They share a member with Islands, whose influence is audible, but Sister Suvi has its own clear, folky, rhythmic sound. Now I Am Champion at times suggests the ukulele-fuelled lo-fi music of The Magnetic Fields and The Mountain Goats, at times approaches a Moldy Peaches-like cutesiness and at times is something completely different. "The Lot," a catchy parable of Montreal gentrification and environmental destruction, sticks in your head, a "Big Yellow Taxi" for present day. Sister Suvi creates a mystic atmosphere without taking themselves too seriously.
