Kestrels | Music | Halifax, Nova Scotia | THE COAST

This fine Halifax- and Truro-based trio’s latest offering further intensifies the band’s insanely catchy, slap-happy pop-punk, circa ’90s-era Superchunk. Melodic lines delivered with a smile yet carefully adorned with guitar bliss, overloaded amps and feedback swirling around your head on angel’s wings. If the first two new tunes on side A haven’t convinced you about the viability of indie-rock in 2011, the side B will knock your socks off---especially “Dead Time”---then the faithful yet more upbeat rendition of Black Tambourine’s “Throw Aggi off The Bridge” that closes this four-song, seven-inch is the real clincher. Moody, dreamy and a hell of a blast of fun. Sounds way better on vinyl, too.
