Album Review

This Montreal group can create classic, melodic dance pop that is still challenging thanks to the hushed, breathy, and alluring vocals of lead singer Emily Elizabeth. A good example of this is the retro-like bounce emanating from "Dance 4," one of four "Dance" songs that would fit well on an album by Stars or even Broken Social Scene. The closing isn't quite as tight as it could be, but nonetheless it's a very good start. "Dance 2" however is more electro-pop with its backbeat blending into a guitar riff that seems out of U2's back catalog, especially The Joshua Tree, as Elizabeth pushes the envelope, veering from a teenage girl to the likes of Björk within mere seconds. However, some of the sonic fat as it hits the homestretch could be pared down, albeit slightly. The album takes a turn with the melodic, Smiths-like guitar jangle that guides "Pop" away from the dancefloor. Another similar pop nugget, "Let's" fuses this jangle with an up-tempo but infectious backbeat that brings Luna or Echo & the Bunnymen instantly to mind while the introductory guitar sounds eerily like the opening to Pink Floyd's "Run Like Hell." The watershed moment on the record comes with the punchy, INXS-like party pop of "Dance 3" that works on several levels. The title track lives up to its billing, creating a lush, string-tinged reflective instrumental that pales by Sigur Rós standards but still holds its own. "Dance 4" has a certain guitar-fuelled bite to it that distinguishes it from the others as if Elizabeth were listening to the Cure before she did the vocals here.

The Dance and Spacepop you don't find at Retail-Mart

So, you've grown lazy. You know what I mean. You buy your polo shirts and cargo shorts or flip-flops at Super Target. Maybe you find yourself at Wal-Mart because the window-blinds are dirt-cheap and the Fruity Pebbles are just a block away in-store in the grocery section. And somewhere between the smell of a few hundred bodies and the hospital sameness of the florescent lights above you find yourself wandering into the entertainment section of the cattletropolis superpurchaseland and convince yourself that you really need The Killers or My Chemical Romance or Fall Out Boy or whatever else is on display at $8.99 or $9.99 or $10.99 and then you get it home and realize it wasn't worth your time. And you aren't 15 anymore. Well, this is where Kiss Me Deadly's "Misty Medley" comes in. No, it doesn't save your life or help you escape from the commercialdom but it does give you a concussion enough to make you wonder that if there was a bizarro world would this album be the "it" album that all the safe hipsters were listening to? Maybe. But, without anymore useless wind, get this album because you can't find it in the Sunday circulars and you probably can on Pandora or in Itunes radio somewhere. It is the crossing-over point which needs to be navigated by anyone. Hippies, Hipsters, Hippos...whatever. Enjoy.

Quite beautiful. I love the vocals....so pretty. What an undiscovered gem.
