I'm behind on my newmusicmondays due to travels to Ottawa, but I'll try to catch up next week with two instalments. Ryan McCormick's Collapsing Opposites evolved out of his solo endeavour after his stint in They Shoot Horses, Don't They?. Collapsing the band into labels like quirky or nerdcore wouldn't do the band justice. The lyrics explore darker themes and Ryan's distinct vocals give the band a distinct signature and meaning. There are plenty of tracks streamed on their CBCr3 page and this Weird Canada review might give you a better impression of what they're all about. Here's a video of a live performance of "You Can Escape from Time"::
