Mark Sultan is clearly a man who likes to take his time. Sultan first got into punk music at only 12, moving on to garage rock at 16. In 1995 he formed the fairly well known Canadian band the Spaceshits and since then he has hopped from cult rock group to cult rock group, occasionally collaborating with the likes of Dan Kroha and Bradford Cox.
It’s hard to wrap your head around because while you may not necessarily know Mark Sultan by name, you are most certainly familiar with his sound. Which is all to say that by the time you listen to his full album Let Me Out, out today it will feel a little like coming home after a long trip. That feeling of, oh yes, this is what I was missing.
Crafted and produced in his own “Imperfection Studios” deep in the forests of Berlin, ‘Let Me Out’ is a return to form by the rock and roll legend whose adventurous decades-long career in music has never sounded more cohesive.
Cosigned by celebrated labels In The Red, Last Gang, Crypt, Fat Possum, Dirtnap, Goner, Sub Pop, Vice, Bomp!, Norton, Sympathy For The Record Industry, and Wick (Daptone Records), Mark Sultan has compiled an impressive discography of collaborations, side projects and solo efforts taking classic garage rock sounds and contorting them in experimental and twisted new ways.
