I don't know what they are feeding the kids in Canada but there are so many great bands coming out of there. Vancouver's Terror Bird are no exception. Made up of Nikki Never (Modern Creatures) and Jeremiah Haywood (Twin Crystals), these two have released a few cassettes and a couple singles now. "Sociopaths are Glam" is my favorite so far. This was a cassette release on Night People out of Iowa City. The music is dark and murkey, lo-fi synth pop. They pull from mid 80's dark wave but their melodies are so haunting and catchy that they blow the competition out of the water. I love that it is so minimal. It has a very skeletal vibe to it but because of the home recorded murk it never really feels bare. Not to mention that Nikki Never's drenched in reverb voice carries the whole thing. Half the time many cassette obscuros' music rules but the vocals blow chunks. Not in this case!
