This is a great example of wicked contemporary Canadian music and how less can be so much more.
Great melodies and instrumentation, and E Haines has one of the purest, sexiest voices I've ever heard. Not a huge fan of the more synth oriented songs, but even they are way more original and better than anything you'll hear on the radio.
I can't say enough about songs like Succexy, IOU and The List... they are insanely catchy (that guitar riff in the "passive attraction" section is sick).
It's fascinating, this is the kind of band I usually detest, but I guess it's the combination of deceptively simple arrangements, great oblique lyrics, solid guitar/bass/drumming and that beguiling voice that does it for me everytime.
I think my gf is starting to regret ever introducing me to them!
