Pop & Rock: Year in Review 2010
Following an unexpected rise to indie stardom with their 2008 debut, Women made the best left turn possible with Public Strain. The Calgary foursome warped their hook-friendly beginnings into a follow-up of art rock séances, weird pop freak-outs and reverb-soaked experiments in modern-day psychedelia, all the while straddling that fine line between "challenging" and "addictive." Swansong or not, Public Strain showed that rock'n'roll can still offer shock and awe.
