Vancougar – Canadian Tuxedo

Mint Records has awesomely sent us Vancougar’s new record, Canadian Tuxedo, for our perusal and review, and after only one full play (and well into the second spin by now), it is already completely addictive. I’ve been bouncing around the living room with the volume on the stereo cranked, loving every track!

This is pop punk rock in its purest, loudest and most fun form, the kind that has you constantly tapping your foot and/or dancing about as your ears are awash in the great vocal harmonies, jangly guitars and the extremely tight, quick musicality that sits boldly up front. There’s tons of peppy fist-pumpers here, and a couple of kick-ass slower numbers for good measure. It’s a good balance, and ordered perfectly.

The sound production here is amazing. I love the bottom end on all of these tracks, that battery combination that thumps and pounds and shakes my rib cage… yes, I am playing this pretty loudly, and the sound is so clear and hot! For the (sadly – I know, I’m greedy) short duration of this disc, the energy is completely unrelenting. This would sound SO good in a live setting!!

There’s a grand tradition for music like this, and Vancougar are at the top of the game with this release. Eden, Megan, CC and Becca have made a perfect record that is a pure force to be reckoned with, so go get your copy right now, put in on your iPod and dance up and down your block like you just don’t care what the neighbours think. Just tell ‘em the KMA sent you, with highest recommendations, and let Vancougar take you on your merry way.
