Since Chris Garneau's first album 'Music For Tourists' was released, he's been near the top of my ones-to-watch list, and I'd been looking forward to the release of 'El Radio' for several months.

Needless to say, it doesn't disappoint. Fans of Garneau's sing-song, gentle, earnest voice will be delighted to hear it is in fine form here. For my money it is one of the best voices in modern music, if more for sincerity and feeling than any technical brilliance (same with Sufjan Stevens, who is a good reference point for Garneau. Also Regina Spektor.)

There is more variety to the musical arrangements than the previous album, and he branches out from his usual piano dominated lullabies to somehow create songs with vast musical landscapes that pretty much all manage to stay under 5 minutes, which is quite an achievement. This makes listening to the album a treat, and even after several listens it still manages to catch you off guard.

Stand out tracks for me include Dirty Night Clowns, No More Pirates, Fireflies and Over and Over.

If you liked Music For Tourists you'll love this, and if you're new to Garneau then how I envy you! He's one of the few artists who I'd like to be able to discover again completely afresh. But until I get amnesia I'll just listen to El Radio and enjoy the surprises of the ride.
