Canada's Women are totally hot. I mean, Women, the band from Canada, are totally hot. I mean, every band from Canada is totally hot right now, let's be honest. But Women in particular have been using all the tricks that make indie kids these days weak in the knees. Besides the obvious little token irony (they’re all men), they strut with the bright beats and heavily harmonized psycho-warbles of a '70s art pop band, but mostly wrap and rip it all with a thick shroud of filthy noise. And the unpredictable but oh-so-studied guitar art on their second record, Public Strain, shows once again that no matter how much you listen to them, Women will always keep you guessing. With Elf Power, Manchild. MARY PAULINE DIAZ
