Top Surprise is a four-piece from Minas Gerais in southeast Brazil. Their bedroom punk recordings that draw heavily on US underground sounds from late 80s and early 90s, from You're Living All Over Me and Daydream Nation to Slanted & Enchanted.
"Saturn (The Season)" has an especially Sonic Youth-y vibe. This jam can be found on a 7-inch as well as on the Everything Must Go cassette. Both releases are freely downloadable under a Creative Commons Music Sharing license courtesy of Pug Records.
