Black Square (We Are Busy Bodies)

"Vote for your favourite DD/MM/YYYY boy!" the band screamed at their Toronto record release. It's kind of tongue-in-cheek, but you're never quite sure. Bouncing from multiple drum sets and tossing instruments across the stage at each other to switch off, DD/MM/YYYY always ensure an active live show, and Black Square captures that frenetic energy well. Thirty-five minutes of electronic, synthetic noise start off with a good blast of sound. The album keeps buzzing throughout, down to the last few tracks, which are some of the best here. The 12 tracks run the gamut of experimental, from slower art rock lullabies to danceable noise.
