Brand New Sonic Avenues Jam

sonicavesDid someone say new Sonic Avenues? Oh you did? Then I’m posting about it. Interestingly, this has a very Canadian feel about it, like an edgier version of Handsome Furs. There’s the same propulsive style, and the delivery is akin tothe aforementioned act. But, these guys rock a bit harder, as you’d expect from an act on Dirtnap Records. They build in that explosion around the 1.45 minute mark, then settle back in to make sure you never forgot that they adore pop sensibility. Their new record, Disconnector, will be out on October 7th…and I’ll be picking it up.

Fresh Power Pop Punk from Sonic Avenues

sonicavesAnother day, another hit from Dirtnap Records. Really, the story should be that Sonic Avenues continue to impress me with their walk between power pop and pop punk, similar to the work of label mates Mind Spiders. That being said, there’s always a shinier side in their tracks, but the breakdown in the middle of this tune feels more sinister, so perhaps their new effort, Disconnector, will have the band expanding on their near-perfect sound. Turn it up loud, listen to the anthemic chorus, and get yourself to the record store on October 7th.
