    I must confess I'm usually sceptical towards female vocalists, but this band is just solid magic you could grasp and, ugh, play around with! :)

    Every second of Our Fall is just mesmerising. Incredibly, I regret to say that the cover version of the Waterboy's Fishermans Blues, whilst excellent (sounds like how Neil Young would have played it on After The Goldrush) --- is the weakest track! Coming after the indescribable Timing it had no chance. Just a wonderful discovery. God bless Canada.

    MAN is We Say No ever awesome. I can't even pinpoint a single fantastic feature, since it's so great all around. The driving rhythm of the bass and piano, the toe-tapping drums, the delicate and aching vocals, the funky guitar, the moody horn, the bittersweet lyrics ... I love it all.
