A Great Stage
(murderecords)
For Will Currie, one of the first acts (along with Pony Da Look) assigned to Sloan's resurrected label, 11 years after murderecords stopped producing non-Sloan material, this is a great start. The pop sextet---five dudes and a woman---make happy, melodic piano pop that Ben Folds' and Heavy Blinkers' fans will adore. They're born out of Wilfrid Laurier University's music faculty, and there's an instrumental maturity behind the melding of male-female harmonies. Songs like "Centrefold" are unabashedly romantic, while "Thunderguard Coastguard Radio" shows humour, much like Halifax's newly claimed piano man Mike Evin.
