"One of the most idiosyncratic bands from a 1970s and '80s Minneapolis scene filled with icons, the Suburbs blend dance friendly grooves, skronky guitar punk and off-the-wall humor for a one-of-a-kind sound. Thankfully, the group has periodically reformed since dissolving in 1987; the current incarnation includes founding singer/keyboardist Chan Poling and drummer Hugo Klaers. They are on tour with a new album, Hey Muse!, set for release on June 23. With German Art Students, Chrash." (June 1, 2017) - ISTHMUS
