Need cheerful sounding pop punk music with sad lyrics? Toronto based trio Talk Show Host offer exactly that. Their second EP Perfectly Competent leans to Nineties college rock - they describe it themselves as Weezer being joined by Bob Mould. They feel at home tearing through fast songs, with surprisingly melodic vocals.
Catchy as Hell on a shoestring budget - they recorded it in the comfort of their rehearsal room and at home after they blew way too much money on their debut EP Disunion Tour. Play them back-to-back and the new one comes out on top.
