Marble Attic
Marble Attic (independent)

Compelling, charming, and noisy, this 12-song debut CD from Brampton-based band Marble Attic is a veritable audio smorgasbord of goodness ripe and ready to be peeled back and exposed.

The self-recorded project belonging to multi-instrumentalist/songwriter Fred Yurichuk took three years to complete. Despite this, the album sounds refreshingly new with the occasional tip of the hat to its obvious and not-so-obvious influences. Pavement comes to mind, as do a few other low-fi bedroom pop outfits, but it’s difficult to pigeon-hole this eclectic quintet into one genre or another.

From the opening track, 17, the insanity begins with multiple drum loops, hooky guitar riffs, audio samples, sugary-sweet boy/girl vocals, and infectious melodies all playing off one another. It’s as though the band managed to fuse together a whack of simple melodies into one song. While the disc’s remaining songs – including the stellar All That I Deserve – carry on in the same vein, repetition doesn’t hurt this recording so much as it enhances it.

For anyone who appreciates honest-to-goodness alt-pop that hasn’t been tainted by mainstream trends of the day, this CD is a must-have. Good luck finding it.
