Talk Show Host - Mid-Century Modern
Mid-Century Modern, the debut LP from Toronto power-pop punk trio TALK SHOW HOST declares its love for ‘90s punk, larger than life guitars, catchy pop melodies and indie rock detours. This is the sound of a band that has taught themselves all the tricks in the power-pop playbook and left notes in the margins.
Over 10 songs, the band, consisting of Chris Veinot (guitar & vocals), Fabien Rivenet (bass & pastry) and Sean Woolven (drums & backup vocals), takes us through a cavalcade of pop-punk hits. Lead single Blood In The Sand is the sort of anthemic sing-along masterpiece that will find you with fists in the air singing along by the chorus, Crisis Actors is the three-piece channeling their inner Anti-Flag while Warmest Condolences finds the band exploring new sonic playgrounds, deftly shifting to a more indie-rock laden arena. This is the sound of a band that has taught themselves all the tricks in the power-pop playbook and left notes in the margins.
Working once again with producer John Dinsmore (PUP, Single Mothers) in his studio the Lincoln County Social Club, the band worked tirelessly to see their vision fulfilled. On Mid-Century Modern, bear witness to the crystallization of punk rock perfection, honed and refined in the DIY trenches and masterfully polished by superlative skill and striking songwriting.
Mid-Century Modern will be released June 4th on Wiretap records in North America, and Disconnect/Disconnect in the UK and Europe.
We have both the pink and blue / white splatter vinyl for the UK / EU.
