Tranzmitors Busy Singles

Compiling four sold-out singles, their recent twelve-inch EP and a bonus track, Busy Singles is a vital piece of plastic for any casual fan of these Vancouver power pop kings. If you don't already own their back catalogue you won't be able to pick up gems like "Some Girls Do" on their original format any time soon, so this collection is a substantial "must." Melding the '77 energy of the Buzzcocks with the updated swagger of the Exploding Hearts, Tranzmitors have developed their sonic niche in the well-worn arena of power pop, blasting out tunes that sound like they could be modern-day Pointed Sticks anthems. The band's strength has always been their singles, making Busy Singles the best collection they've offered so far. (Deranged)
