Supers Spklanng!

With Odds on hiatus and the Killjoys MIA, there is a hole in Canadian power-pop waiting to be filled. Along come the Supers, with impeccable playing, rich harmonies, crisp production courtesy of Michael Philip Wojewoda, eye-catching comic book cover art by Kurt Swinghammer, and plenty of power in their pop equation. What’s missing? It all sounds a bit studied and self-conscious, like Matthew Sweet during one of his lesser moments. Once they find their own voice, everything else is already in place and there will be much ass to be kicked. (Tri-Pop)
