A Weird Tuesday EP Highlight:

Vancouver’s Brutal Poodle create a murky pool of sound, and that’s the whole charm of this lo-fi gem. Sound tends to come at you in a fuzzy wall rather than in distinct parts, but there are wonderful textures and melodies in the mix. Whether it’s on the Paul Weller-style punk number “Broadcast” or on the more downbeat grunginess of “Anna’s Gone” the male and female vocals come together at the most opportune times to form great harmonies. Perhaps the best moment comes with “Space is Displaced”, a song with exciting drive that drags you along (willingly) with all its ragged shambolic energy.
