Ottawa’s most excellent power-pop and rock n’ roll band, Mnemonics, just put out a wicked new album. Too Late To Get Loud is a great 12-song album from start to finish. I love the tracks “Near Modern Disaster,” “Bitter Bug,” and “Spoken.” These cool dudes, describe themselves as “Four friends based in Centretown, Ottawa with a mutual love of 90’s alt-rock, power-pop, and punk making a melodious racket singing about girls, phobias (including girls), and other stuff.” I could not put it better myself.
On March 20th, I published a review of their latest performance and mentioned that I would love for some new recorded music… I guess sometimes it really does pay off just to ask. I strongly encourage you to go to their bandcamp and pick up the album, as they were kind enough to allow you to name your own price. Also, if you like what you hear, they are playing April 14 at Luneta when they open for Broadcaster.
