This week's newmusicmonday was a tip from Officer M. in Vancouver. Some might appreciate this Pitchfork review of Meet Me at the Muster Station, but you need to winnow the useful from the precious treacle.

Just check out their signature song, "Facelove"::

This is a song that wears its dysfunction on its sleeve unapologetically and the video matches it perfectly. The band captures the best of DIY low-fi of raw, confessional tales. Definitely check out the streamed songs on the CBCRadio3 link above. Give it time to grow on you, if the vocals aren't quite your cup of tea. The sonic craftsmanship is impressive and if you don't listen to "Facelove" more than once, you might be dead inside.
