the eminent indie rockers have created a masterfully dynamic record of swampy grunge and tender art-pop; we can almost forgive them for the 7-year wait.

The follow-up to 2013’s ‘Purgatory/Paradise’ is an outpouring of modal guitars, reverbed shapes, echoey drums and driving bass set behind Kristin Hersh’s well-thumbed notebook of storylines. A ten-song opus of suitably wrought tales set against a wall of sound that’s at once calm and ethereal before building into glorious cacophonous crescendos. “All [sun racket] asked of us was to co-mingle two completely disparate sonic vocabularies: one heavy noise, the other delicate music box.” - Kristin Hersh. “Sun Racket is something special, hallucinatory and primal without feeling forced and laboured” 4/5 – the arts desk.
