Tangiers
Never Bring You Pleasure
(Sonic Unyon)
The Toronto duo serves up their second dose of melodious power-pop. Tangiers mixes ’70s glam, ’80s new wave and ’90s indie influences into sparse but upbeat numbers. “Ro Ro Ro-land,” driven by a Fisher Price synth-beat, is minimal pop that captures the innocence and beauty of a twisted nursery rhyme. “Love Rackets” is Roxy Music taken over by Franz Ferdinand. If the band falls flat in any area, it’s in production values that don’t provide enough meat to attach to the many hooks.
