Suretoss has been a labor of love for [l=Jigsaw] Records founder Chris McFarlane, a sometimes arduous project he has kept alive through numerous relocations and lineup changes. The band's sound is classic and eminently enjoyable: frenetic, soupy indie pop that's not incredibly innovative, just a rousing good time. McFarlane and co (actually, sometimes Suretoss is just McFarlane) pull off dynamic, satisfying soft/loud verse/chorus transitions while soaking you in warm currents of sunny rhythms that threaten to drown the stretched-thin vocals. [a=Superchunk], [a=Archers of Loaf], and other proponents of the tuneful lo-fi aesthetic are obvious reference points, though Suretoss tends slightly more towards cute bedroom pop.
