Published May 28, 2013It's been more than four years since Jane's Party dropped their debut album, 2009's The Garage Sessions, and following the recent 'Til You Got Yours EP, the band are finally ready to release album number two. Hot Noise came out digitally last week, and you can stream the whole thing is advance of next week's physical release.
These 12 tracks were laid down at Zeus' Ill Eagle Studio in Toronto with Taylor Knox. A press release name-drops sonic touchstones like the Beach Boys, the Kinks and the Strokes, and you'll hear traces of these bands in the bright pop melodies and slight trace of guitar grit.
Opener "Palm Reading" is pure sunshine, but "Meet Me Halfway" adds a hint of overdriven strumming, while "'Til You Get Yours" injects a hint of blues rock into its organ riffs and "Miles Away" features McCartney-esque cabaret pop bounce.
Jane's Party will release Hot Noise with some Canadian shows in the next couple of months. See the tour schedule below, along with the album stream.
