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)

(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.

Memory Screens

Somewhere between Post-Rock and Joyful Noise a project by Canadian Experimentalist Mark Webber, warms up the coldest Canadian days. Fit for early mornings watching the sun rise with a cup of tea enjoying the company of good friends and having nostalgic conversations about youthful adventures. Most of the vocals are over saturated with reverb, percussion and rhythm parts are planned out perfectly and immaculately executed. It calls to mind the Jazz inspired tracks by the Why Because but with less of a Krautrock influence.

We all know the people at Stratosphering have great taste considering the put up my Fourth Realm ep but they also wrote about Memory Screens aswell…

Chordata Primate is now known as Memory Screen…Get this if you’re a fan of Do Make Say Think and miss the way they used to play jazz like they wanted to hypnotize the Titans…All of it was awesome.
