Release Notes:
This is fucking amazing!
Back in May 2006 we baptized the emergence of the
Montreals energetic party machine Think About Life
with the release of their self-titled debut. Here
they are three years later with their sophomore
effort, Family. This time around the trio is as
off-the-hook as ever, but since they dropped their
debut they have polished their sound, without
losing their edge. Three years is a long wait but
multi-instrumentalist Graham Van Pelt has been busy
with his other band, Polaris prize nominees Miracle
Family is broken-toy disco rock, served funky, like
a big friendly bowl of sugary breakfast cereal.
Upon a base of hearty synths and sweaty drums these
tunes bubble with 80s pop guitar licks and are
bedazzled with meta-marshmallows of electronic
drones and glitchy samples. This alt-dance exterior
is a framework from which hang beautifully rhythmic
vocals, either musing empathetically about
high-school lovers and guilt-ridden bus rides or
issuing vaguely strange missives about mysterious
wizards and black champagne. The tone is sometimes
sly, sometimes frantic but never menacing, ironic
or fey. Sounds like LCD Sound System, Outkast,
Blur, TV on the Radio, Cars and Quincy Jones-era
Michael Jackson done in the ramshackle, outsider
style of Public Enemys producers the Bomb Squad.
Family is probably as influenced by cartoon theme
songs and 8-bit video game music as the L.A. riots.
Beyond its charming pop heart and playful
nouveau-disco trimmings, Family can also serve as a
floatation device in case of bad-vibes. Step into
their rad imagination, they got the magic touch.
