You Can’t Break the Strings in Our Olympic Hearts

You Can’t Break the Strings in Our Olympic Hearts
Apparently the Diableros didn’t give much thought to dynamics on their winning debut release You Can’t Break the Strings in Our Olympic Hearts. Led by the retro tones of a Farfisa organ, the group rarely takes things down below flat-out. The resulting massive sound makes Broken Social Scene’s latest come off like an exercise in minimalism. With endless tracks of rattling guitars, thick drum tones and frontman Pete Carmichael’s yelping vocals, the album can be overwhelming at first, but quickly settles into itself. At its core it’s an engaging, warmly written disc…that makes you feel like you’re being run over by a parade.
