The Beaches – Late Show

From the opening rhythms joined by jangly grunge distortion, it instantly becomes apparent that this record harkens to past musical styles that are now once again in vogue. Whether it be Jordan’s instantly attention-grabbing vocals from the first verse of “Back of Your Heart,” her sister Kylie’s constant face-ripping guitar work, or Leandra and Eliza’s retro rhythms on keys and drums respectively, their debut LP commands attention. This entire tracklist, from front to back, has smash hit written all over it, as their recent national chart success has proven. Masterfully produced by Emily Haines and Jimmy Shaw of Metric, “Late Show” is one of the most accomplished Canadian LPs in over a decade.
