Aceface Amazing Dementia

This EP’s sleeve features the parka-clad Torontonians on scooters. Mod, soul and Brit pop are the keys genres here, as the mid-tempo, guitar-based tunes are angular, groovy and melodic (respectively?). Paul Weller’s shadow appears in the slow-Jam of some tracks and in the vocals of front-man Carl Nanders, who with his constant Briticisms had better be from England, let me tell you. About half of this six-tracker is very good, a promising start to a career that will hopefully move beyond the Blow-Up set. (B-Group)
