V44 third album from Canadian expat who set the tone with the drift to Berlin with previous collaboraters Peaches, Feist, Taylor Savvy, Mocky et al... for an example of pure musical genius and acute wit look no further than this (and his other albums including the most recent Soft Power, Ivory Tower and The Unspeakable Chilly Gonzales). Major behind the scenes figuring with Feist... and awesome earlier musical incarnation with Peaches and Taylor Savvy titled The Shit. I can keep going on and on about great he is... and most prileged to have toured him in Australia on the Big Day Out years back.... and still way ahead of his time even now. Catch up... brilliant!
