There’s not much point to putting an About page on your website if the only description you’re willing to give about your band is “Genetically modified cats and dogs. From Toronto, Ontario”, but maybe, in the case of Blackpaw Society, even that’s too much information. Friends Greyowl Point argue that less is more, and in the case of Lesson In Leisure Volume 2, I tend to agree.
Instantly gripping and enthralling, Lessons In Leisure Volume 2 offers a proper indie-pop schooling for both freshman and seniors entering the genre. Each song, as disparate and individual as they are, flow freakishly easy into each other, a trait that’s matched in impressiveness only by the way each song itself twists and mutates in front of your very ears (see the morph-tastic fifth track “Modern Medicine”).
According to the aforementioned website, there’s three albums under the Blackpaw Society moniker (including Lessons In leisure Volume 2) available, starting with 2010’s self-titled album. I’m dumbstruck: how have I not heard this of this these past four years? How could such a wickedly awesome artist glide undetected amidst all the pap and nonsense out there for so long? Could it have anything to do with being genetically modified cats and dogs? Who cares! I’m gladly offering these mutant mutts and mongrels a good home in my music collection.
Lessons In Leisure Volume 2 is out as of August 11 and is available on iTunes, as well as streaming on Soundcloud.
