Another fantastic recommendation from Gannon. Awesome album that makes me want to quit my job, learn guitar and make music in my bedroom for the next 25 years.

5.0 out of 5 stars Style And Substance (9/10) 12 Mar 2010
By Gannon TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
There are three types of lo-fi. Due to budget constraints, one is recorded badly because it has to be. Recently this sort of thing has done very well, and minor labels haven't bothered to touch up the rough and ready sound. This is because of the success of the second type of lo-fi, of which there are two distinct threads. The first of these uses sonically-challenged equipment for nostalgic and stylistic reasons, the second uses perfectly functional equipment and then mashes the masters purely for aesthetic purposes. Both have to be carefully done so as to avoid voracious style over substance claims.

Toronto's multi-instrumentalist Little Girls, who usually goes by the name of Josh McIntyre, seems to belong to the latter category and balances his output well. His Tambourine EP from June 09 piqued the interest of the blogosphere and with raw takes on wall-of-sound surf-rock post-punk he naturally ticks a lot of contemporary boxes.

Concepts lurches into life with the ridiculously likeable "Youth Tunes". It's full of Wire-like tension and New Order riffs, driven by drum machine pulses it allows for a spoken sample to jabber as waves of guitars compete to kill lazy lo-fi competition. Rival chords duel it out on the mid-tempo guitarwork of "Seeing" while a faster synth beat provides urgency.

The titular highlight from the Tambourine EP again dominates its host, similar to what has gone before but with devastating bass and atmospherics jammed up in the red. McIntyre's vocal is here, like everywhere, lost in a sea of fuzz, his lyrics no more than rhythmic incantations devoid of meaning.

Variety is short on the ground but it doesn't matter as McIntyre knows the value of brevity, cutting most tracks breathlessly short.
