iTunes Review

The sophomore album by Vancouver's Yukon Blonde (formerly Alphababy), Tiger Talk, is a much faster-paced and more energetic album than its Polaris Prize–nominated 2010 debut. What started as punk-inspired demos soon evolved into punchy indie rock with lofty three-part vocal harmonies. The opening song, “My Girl,” layers jangly guitars over hard-driving rhythms while Jeff Innes croons with a West Coast drawl. “Stairway” rocks out with stuttered guitar riffs, new wave–flavored keyboards, and some utterly contagious chorus melodies that recall bygone power pop. The band slows things down a bit with “Oregon Shores,” where bouncy rhythms and Beach Boys–inspired “oohs” and “aahs” build a wall of harmony in the song’s soaring chorus (dig Brandon Scott’s distorted guitar solo on this one). Sounding inspired by early-'90s indie, “Six Dead Tigers” will resonate with anyone who ever put The Apples in Stereo or The Lilys on a mixtape for that special someone. The token ballad “Sweet Dee” closes the album with soft guitar tones, a steady tambourine, and lovelorn lyrics.
