This Toronto quar­tet is all over the map, and there’s no clear indication what the map is de­pict­ing. There’s def­i­nitely some Kills in New Fries, circa Keep on Your Mean Side, and also some of Cal­gary band Women’s fond­ness for throw­ing you off balance with out-of-left-field noise that sounds ca­cophonous at first, but be­gins to co­here af­ter re­peated lis­tens. Though chaos rules, there’s ev­i­dence of in­tel­li­gent de­sign in More, and a lit­tle play­ful­ness too (amus­ing song ti­tles in­clude “Gertrude Stein Greet­ing Card From Pape/dan­forth” and “Mary Pop­pins Pock­ets”). This can be ad­dic­tive, if you’re into weird, jar­ring melees.
