O VOIDS -self titled LP (Troubleman Unlimited)

This post-punk/no wave - styled three piece hail from Montreal, and if the sound of this blistering set of songs is anything to go by, they've never heard a record made after 1981.And that is not a bad thing at all.Mostly dark in mood and melody,with a few unexpected poppy turns throughout the album.It maintains a fun and bouncy tempo,but doesn't bore you to death with it's charm.There is an overall dark tone going on here.The roughly recorded analogue clamour the band has come up with is instantly seductive, already winning them comparisons with Mission Of Burma, Fugazi and The Fall.Good,good stuff.Do it to it.
