ALBUM REVIEW: How to have sex with Canadians

Red Alert, 2009By Marcel Feldmar, The Red Alert

So, basically the only reason I requested this CD is because of the title. Just one of those things. So now it’s time to see if the music works for me as well. This Toronto band creates what they have termed “Canadiana Vanguard and Organica”, but I’m not exactly sure what that means.

The CD starts off nicely pretty. Perhaps kind of French-poppy, but Canadianified. Smooth groove light spring weather sunshine jazzy, with Janine Stoll’s vocals airy and lilting, lifting, against the slight drum brush breeze and indie-jazz guitars. The next song moves a little more straight and popped, with the vocals now touching upon a little Rainer Maria memory. The music is still faded and subdued in the background, but still moving steady and waterfall-like forwards. It’s very cute, and light, and I don’t know if this CD would help people (at least the people I know) have sex with Canadians, but it would be spinning if I was trying to have a picnic in the park with Canadians.

It’s a bright, fresh, airy EP, and works well with a nice glass of chilled white wine.
