Quick Spins

 

Deane Nesbitt Jr.
Here’s To Alberta Special Edition Single (Independent)

An uplifting song…
sweeping, epic, background hum
for elevators

 

Dirty Tricks
Demerits (Blue Skies Turn Black)

A really fine disc!
Trouser-shaking rock and roll
as it should be played

 

13 & God
13 & God (Anticon)

Any super-group
without “Ringo” or “Starr” in
its name is okay.

 

Kid606
Resilience (TigerBeat6)

Is Sir chops-a-lot
taking Ritalin now? Still—
Kid is hot tonight!

 

Ghetto Pony
Post Apocalyptic Bubblegum Music (Independent)

Montreal techno
so bad, so cheesy, so fun
so, well, you know, French

 

Staind
Chapter V (Atlantic)

Quite a feat indeed
when you can make Nickleback
sound interesting

 

Horace X
Strategy (Omnium)

A “Cotton-Eyed Joe”
for the unwashed hippie crowd
it hurts my earholes

 

Windsor for the Derby
Giving Up the Ghost (Secretly Canadian)

Mellow acoustics
and droney keyboard stylings
make a nice listen.
