Immaculate Machine may be done and New Pornographers are taking a break. The good news is keyboardist/singer Kathryn Calder has blossomed with two albums in just over a year. Any observant listener cannot be surprised that the Victoria-based performer has got it going on. Particularly fond of ’80s synthesizers and the echo chamber, she still appreciates a good pop hook. Calder’s captivating voice can get submerged in the gloss, though The Cocteau Twins were rarely this catchy. “Turn a Light On,” with its siren song to the unconscious embodies striving for a brighter outlook.
