Holy Fuck Toronto, ON February 11
Arguably Toronto's best live band going, Holy Fuck's free-blip, madcap circus of sound closed the second night of Wavelength 500 in thrilling fashion. As always, the four-piece's rhythm section kept things in check, letting lead sound manipulators, Brian Borcherdt and Graham Walsh traipse all over the sonic map. Seemingly shambolic, each Holy Fuck track was bookended by chaos and tattered musical threads, and therein rested the band's greatest asset: unlike so many electronic acts, their songs never felt canned. Instead, they brimmed with spontaneity. Visceral and exhilarating, it was a frenetically compelling closer.
