The Lucky Setback - Buy Low Build Cheap
Ottawa's The Lucky Setback have only been together for a couple of years, but I'be listened to what they've been doing in that time and been more and more impressed. It's all culminated in this nine song debut that is a fine album.
This is great down and dirty Indie, but the highs are high and the hooks are plentiful. There are real glimpses of the likes of Payola$ here, yet the band seem equally comfortable in the great Pop of Cut Me To Quick. Bang Bang Electric is a sort of Funk Glam and All In My Head is a splendid meander of a song.
You do sense there's a liking of Grunge, but fortunately when they head there, they nail it, particularly on Full On. There's plenty here to admire and Buy Low Build Cheap is a splendid debut album. I look forward to seeing their career prosper.
