Say Sue Me – Your Book

Say Sue Me release their new single Your Book on October 4th 2019. It’s backed with Good People. On Your Book the band refrain from the surf rock/rock ‘n roll that has infused their recent releases and return to their alternative rock and shoegazing roots. It’s a melodic track that is slow burning only being interrupted by a frantic burst of guitars before pausing and returning on it’s path. The calm, assured vocals suit the desolate words. Your Book is available to pre-order from Damnably in 7″ yellow vinyl and digital formats. Facebook Continue reading Say Sue Me – Your Book

Say Sue Me – George & Janice/Don’t Follow Our Van

During their tour last year South Korean band Say Sue Me fell victim to a scam in Milan losing amongst other things tour takings, kit and personal belongings. They started a fundraiser back in February to cover costs, including those for a forthcoming tour, which has reached it’s target. As part of the fundraiser they recorded a single which is now available to those to those who were unaware of the fundraiser or were unable to donate at the time. George & Janice is another one of those 1960s surf/rock and roll inspired tracks the band seem to be producing … Continue reading Say Sue Me – George & Janice/Don’t Follow Our Van

Something For The Weekend? Three Christmas Releases

This weeks pack of three covers three releases that hark (ho ho ho) to the time of year. Say Sue Me – Christmas, It’s Not a Biggie Is this the EP that sees Sue Say Me turn into a fully fledged rock n’ roll band? The hints in their previous couple of releases bear fruition here. The excellent title track blends surf and indie pop whilst it also contains elements from The Waitresses Christmas Wrapping. Too Expensive Christmas Tree is a full on surf rock instrumental whilst the other two tracks are the band’s take on the more traditional Christmas … Continue reading Something For The Weekend? Three Christmas Releases

Say Sue Me – Just Joking Around​/​B​-​Lover

Excellent double sided new single from Busan’s Say Sue Me. Just Joking Around is a slow burning ballad before suddenly exploding into a frenzy of guitar riffs. Plenty of Pavement and Pale Saint influences on this one. Flip side ​B​-​Lover on the other hand is a fuzzy C86 laden affair which sees the band returning to the sound that grabbed me in the first place. Say Sue Me show no signs of letting up whatsoever. Just Joking Around​/​B​-​Lover is available as limited edition vinyl plus the usual digital formats. Order it from here. Facebook Continue reading Say Sue Me – Just Joking Around​/​B​-​Lover

Say Sue Me/Otoboke – Beaver Split 7″

I mentioned Say Sue Me’s wonderful track Good For Some Reason last month and at that point it was only available digitally. It’s now surfaced on a split 7″ release via Damnably and on the flip side is the very shouty Sil Vous Plait from Japanese punk poppers Otoboke Beaver which might catch you unaware if you have the headphones on. My ears are still ringing. The vinyl comes in either split pink & blue or split blue & transparent. Order from Damnably.

Say Sue Me – Good For Some Reason

Busan’s Say Sue Me could have eaily made one of the, if not, best tracks of the year for me. Good For Some Reason has been on constant repeat for a couple of weeks now and I don’t see that changing for quite some time. Indiepop at it’s glorious best. Excuse whilst I press play once more…… A vinyl version will appear on the Damnably label in the future but for now get it from the band digitally.
