TOPS is a new Montreal-based four piece that is a making a stir with their debut full length, Tender Opposites, out on Arbutus Records last month. Two of the members are from one of my fav Montreal bands the Silly Kissers but each of them played in a number of other bands too, including Pat Jordache, Paula, Hammond-Ri and Sugar Boys. Vocalist Jane Penny’s light vocals coincide well with the moody lo-fi jams that wreak of the eighties and overall, it’s a really awesome debut.
You can download the album for a mere five bucks at their Bandcamp page, I highly recommend it! Also they are currently on tour (and playing 560 in Vancouver tonight, March 29!) so be sure to check them out at a city near you!
