Tangiers - Never Bring You Pleasure
Written by Nicholas Jennings    PDF Print E-mail

Tangiers - Never Bring You PleasureToronto’s Tangiers has left behind the Strokes comparisons to forge a fresh and sparkling sophomore album. With a greater emphasis on clean vocals and the addition of crisp keyboards, there’s a bouncier, more accessible side to songs like the driving “Walk Run Walk” and the insanely memorable “Ro-Ro-Roland.” Although a raw, garage edge still exists, it’s less self-conscious this time around. Like Victoria, B.C.’s fabulous Hot Hot Heat, Tangiers is crafting joyous dance music for people who don’t usually dance.
