Women – Public Strain

Fresh of the presses…..the new Women album has found its way on the the interweb and let’s just say that these Canadian natives have done it again. The new album shows them expanding their sound to more melodic pop plateaux. To me it sounds like they have been diggin on a lot of New York bands; a cup of Sonic Youth, a dash of Velvet Underground, and a smidge of Grizzly Bear. And like on their debut, these guys come through with some fascinating instrumentation. This one will definitely make the list of 2010 greatness.

Preview 3 of the tracks below…

Heat Distraction
(This one’s for those all-nighters in Gotham City)

Eyesore
(Pop perfection)

Venice Lockjaw

(Hit the lights and take it down a notch)

The LP comes out on August 23 on Jagjaguwar, so be sure to pick it up.
