Communions - So Long Sun

Copenhagen’s Communions are inextricably tangled up with the Danish scene that spawned bands like Iceage, Lower, Vår, and Lust For Youth: Communions share a rehearsal space with the former two bands (among others), and they have released music on Posh Isolation, the label owned by Loke Rahbek, who is a member of the latter two bands. But Communions do not sound anything like any of those bands. For my money, they are so much better! When I listen to the band’s new two-song 7″ (which follows the Cobblestones EP from earlier this year), I can hear some early Real Estate, some La’s, some Go-Betweens, but it reminds me of nothing so much as the Stone Roses’ 1989 debut — which is about the highest praise I can think of. It’s a warm gust of spindly, spider-y guitars and heavy-lidded, heavenly vocals, all soaked in good LSD and set to a bubbling, effortless, joyous rhythm. I’ve now listened to the A-side, “So Long Sun,” a few dozen times over the past hour, and I’m already starting to itch for a full-length. You can check it out below, and you definitely should do just that.

The “So Long Sun”/”Love Stands Still” 7″ is out 11/7 via Tough Love.
