Vancouver four-piece punk outfit Necking share a collective eye roll at all those too self-absorbed to realize their exes aren’t “keeping tabs” on them, with this super catchy closer off their latest five-track EP, Meditation Tape. No music here for actual meditation, but rather cutthroat meditations on gender stereotypes (“Daddy Issues”) and commercialism (“Ford Commercial”). Personal favourite “Stop Singing” implores guys to get over their egos and finally stop singing about the ocean, their cars and ex – that is to say, stop singing about yourself.

Necking’s Meditation Tape is available on Bandcamp.
