ALBUM REVIEW: How to have sex with Canadians
Following up previous collaborations, Toronto-based Janine Stoll joins forces with two members of Afrobeat band Mr. Something Something in The DoneFors. The songs on How to Have Sex With Canadians are dreamlike concoctions that move along crisply with just a hint of the exotic. “Mouth Full of Marbles” wraps a metaphor-drenched narrative with contraband and a guillotine around a hypnotic hook. Stoll gets sultry on a few numbers that could use a horn or two for ambience. Unrequited love, in “The Last Thing You Do,” combines streaking and stalking in hopes the object of her affection will see her on the TV news. Such a tale needs crazier music.
