Cookie Duster When Flying Was Easy
(SQE Music)
Brendan Canning formed this indie-rock band in Toronto in the late 90s: they released one album before entering a hiatus in 2001 due to his other band – Broken Social Scene – surging in popularity. On their sophomore album, which came into being from the band’s revival last year, they deliver an interesting mix of tunes in varying styles, many of which have a summery keyboard-driven feel. It’s difficult to pinpoint this album’s style using just a few words, but it certainly has a fun, smart and mature nature to it overall. My favorite track is easily the excitedly beaming “Standing Alongside Gone,” drenched in a deluge of synthesized sunset bliss. The sunniest rack and first single “Two Feet Sound Up” is excellent as well, with an obviously enthusiastic sound of youthful energy. Even a slowed-down song about a totally incompatible relationship (“Something Evil Again”) sounds gorgeous and lively amidst the celestial synth and guitars. “Space Will Follow” is another high point, using a variety of brightly galactic-sounding guitar techniques to make the experience especially trippy.

Family Band Grace & Lies
(No Quarter)
Visual artist Kim Krans and formerly heavy metal-specializing guitarist Jonny Ollsin are the Brooklyn couple who make up Family Band. With the help of bassist and lapsteel player Scott Hirsch, they create sad, thoughtful, folk-inspired music on their second album. It starts off with the fittingly titled “Night Song,” using heavily distorted beats, Ollsin’s gently twinkling guitar and Krans’ mournful voice singing about lies, secrets, and waiting for dawn. Her voice particularly shines on the beautifully woven ballad “Moonbeams,” with a repeated desire to hear someone’s “wondering sound.” The lullaby-esque title track personifies “Grace” as a woman and “Lies” as a man, both in a relationship and singing out each other’s names: the vocals sound both mellow and passionate. The eight-minute closer “Rest” sounds softly dream-like as well, particularly in the first instrumental half: it ends with some surprisingly busy, unique ambient sounds behind the steel guitar chords and Krans’ moody vocals.
