Sprawl Sarah Veladora

Toronto's Sprawl have been doing the rounds since 1996, and have hit the nail on the head with their third album, Sarah Veladora (a piss-take on Cera Veladora). With the help of the reputable producer Rob Sanzo, the four members of Sprawl have concocted a delightful cocktail of infectious pop rock. Led by the unique vocal stylings of Ralph Kircher, Sprawl create a melodic world filled with dreamy guitars, bouncy rhythms and smart lyrics. Self-produced under the guise of Los Vanqueros Analogicos (The Analogue Cowboys), Sarah Veladora never misses its mark, keeping a steady balance of stimulating musical moments all the way through.
