Let’s All Go New Wave With Sonic Avenues’ ‘Disconnector’ LP
Montreal power-pop enthusiasts Sonic Avenues aren't afraid of good old fashioned '80s nostalgia. Over the course of 12 tracks, the band's new LP, Disconnector, is pop through and through, stacking hooks on top of hooks while tapping into some of the decade's punk-leaning influences — from Buzzcocks to Devo to Flock of Seagulls. It's melodic and it's fun, but most of all, it's good and repeatable. Do yourself a favor and stream Disconnector in full, and catch them on the road at the dates below surrounding their appearance at The Fest. Order your copy, due October 7, via the venerable Dirtnap (and Blow the Fuse in Canada).
Oct. 6 — Montréal, QC @ La Vitrola
