You Say Party! We Say Die!: The Gap
Canadian hyperactives get all worked up
Who says that Canada’s boring? Well, most of the developed world, actually. With that in mind, thank God for weirdo bands like Arcade Fire and bastions of piss sex and ‘golden’ harmonies The Hidden Cameras for flying the mad flag for the ol’ Maple Leaf. Now add You Say Party! We Say Die! to that list – singer Becky Ninkovic here repeats, “We’re gonna take a dump!” over and over, while her band make the kind of synth-pumped mess that has more in common with ¡Forward, Russia! than merely the punctuation. The fact that they’ve also produced artwork featuring a corpse tooting a party blower should impress, too.
