Synopsis

Album Description
To say that things "came together quickly" for Detroit avant-rock outfit SSM is the mother of all understatements. Like a torrent of madness, the kind that produces works of shocking brilliance, the trio of singer/keyboardist John Szymanski, drummer Dave Shettler and singer/guitarist Marty Morris ground a pearl from sand in less time than it takes most bands to tie their collective shoelaces. Known best for their significant contributions to Detroit rock via the HENTCHMEN, the SIGHTS and the CYRIL LORDS, respectively, SSM came together in July 2005, and have been thrilling audiences since with their shocking new creation. Lumbering bass, Samba, pop and art-rock all find their way into this brilliant debut album which also features the collaboration of guitarist/singer Dan Auerbach of Akron, Ohio?s BLACK KEYS. SSM is burning brightly, moving toward a sonic revelation of indeterminable power. \"There are two differences between SSM and countless garage-rock revivals: the sound is scruffier and the songs are smarter. Unruly analog keyboards and dinky rhythm machines define the sound as much as overloaded fuzz-tone guitar, and the tunes slip free of three-chord orthodoxy. Despite the vintage equipment, this is no 1960\'s revival; it\'s a warped reinvention.\" The NEW YORK TIMES
