I remember back when The Meligrove Band released their first album on the (now defunct?) Toronto-based label Ductape Records. They were a lone group of young hippies stuck in an endless sea of snotty punk kids, playing catchy pop songs that went over everyone's heads. Now, a few years later, their sound has developed and their time has come. They have just released Planets Conspire, their 3rd full-length album and first for V2 Records. I fully expect it to turn some heads. This is great 70's retro rock, highlighted by wistful vocals, piano and authentic old school production. The album's out this week in Canada, and later this year in the U.S. and Europe. Check out more songs over at www.meligroveband.com.
