ALBUM REVIEW: How to have sex with Canadians
By Jason Schneider, Exclaim Magazine, Toronto (03/09)
Toronto singer-songwriter Janine Stoll certainly knows a good thing when she hears it. After assembling a band of top-notch players to back her for shows promoting her last solo album, This Is Where We Bury It, the musical chemistry they shared has led to this new project, a clear departure from Stoll’s normal work. Drawing upon a wealth of technical skill, The DoneFors delve into some daring musical territory while at the same time maintaining an honest and live overall sound. At times reminiscent of vintage Rheostatics and Jane Siberry, the songs are rooted in a storytelling style that’s just as adventurous as the music, driven by Stoll’s wonderfully unpredictable pipes. How To Have Sex With Canadians is a unique first effort from a band that, in spite of their name, deserve to have a long life.
