I can remember seeing Supersystem open for Q And Not U a few years ago, back when they were still known as El Guapo. At the time, they didn't leave much of an impression on me. There were some cool bits and pieces within their songs but I thought they seemed a little schizophrenic and needed to refine their sound a bit more. Lo and behold, after relaunching under the new name Supersystem they put together a stunning album called Always Never Again, mixing danceable beats with layers of synth, guitars, and punk rock energy. Next month Supersystem return with their latest release A Million Microphones, recorded with engineer Jonathan Kreinik (Trans Am, Make Up, Out Hud, !!!). At the moment, the Touch & Go website has the song "White Light/White Light" posted for your listening pleasure. Not bad, but I'm looking forward to hearing more from this disc real soon.
