Duotang (2015)

Winnipeg, MB

Unofficially apart since 2001, Duotang lovingly deconstructed every hipster stereotype you could imagine through their ‘60s music-worshipping, jangly, call-and-response mod rock with the occasional bombastic horn section recorded on eight-track cassette decks. With a sound that emulates Modern Lovers in its half-bored manner, their “reunion” in 2014 means that Canada’s answer to idiosyncratic post-punk is reanimated.
