Dragonette - Fixin to ThrillMartina Sorbara is hard to ignore. The singer-songwriter, daughter of former Ontario finance minister Greg Sorbara, first turned heads as a provocative solo artist. These days, with her husband, bassist-producer Dan Kurtz, she’s the striking frontwoman of stylish electro-popsters Dragonette. The band’s latest CD is a mostly thrilling affair, with a fizzy pop sound featuring Martina’s frenzied yelps and sexy purrs over dazzling synths and block-rockin’ beats, best heard on “Easy” and the banjo-sampling “Gone Too Far.”
