The German Manchester spits forth another pearl.
Only two years after the band was born and a single year after their debut “Leda” SURALIN from Chemnitz
gear up to the release of their second album “A General Dogsbody”. Their creativity seems to have
benefitted from a bleak and dark winter surrounded by the industrial-historical atmosphere of their
SURALIN stick to their principles while they move from the woman with the swan to the girl with the dog –
all this while their cover artwork allows for some freedom in the interpretation of the album’s title.
The music delivers on the artwork’s promise: the reduced, minimalist excitement lies at the core of the new
album. No fuss, just bass, drums, two guitars and one voice. The new songs prove to be more muscular,
shorter and reduced to the essentials. “A General Dogsbody” impresses with its versatility in the same way
that “Leda” did. Each of the ten fragments finds its perfect place in the band’s musical framework.
SURALIN pretend the nineties never happened and brilliantly bridge the gap between bands of yore like
GANG OF FOUR, FUGAZI, TRANS AM, the early SONIC YOUTH and decidedly “now”-bands like INTERPOL,
„A General Dogsbody“ spans the abyss between catchy summer tunes like „Keep It Dark“ and progressive
outbursts like “Catharsis?!” while a song like “Bright Black Morning Light” rides the hypnotic wave of a
single key with its distorted singsong. SURALIN are not scared of experiments which is underlined by their
epically-bewildered pop song “Sonata For A Good Soul” all the while staying true to themselves.
Post-punk and pop coexist while the band emphasize the merits of the minimalist approach. “A General
Dogsbody” is sinewy and juicy all the way through.
