Outtacontroller - Don't Play Dumb LP - Red Vinyl /100, a photo by Tim PopKid on Flickr.
Outtacontroller is another band that calls Canada home. There must be something in the water up there because that country has been churning out more amazing pop bands than just about any place else that I can think of. Outtacontroller is no exception to this as, much like kindred spirits, The Steve Adamyk Band, they have cranked out an album of fast, tight & catchy punked up pop songs.
There are way too many highlights to list them all, but I feel it bears mentioning that I think this record starts out OK, but after the 3rd song or so, it really comes into its own and becomes great. The absolute peak of this album for me is "Put It On High" where the band builds an entire song around the singer who want's to sleep with the fan on even though it's December. Fantastic.
This is definitely among the best albums I've picked up so far this year and another reason why I love being in the Ptrash club as it's the only way that I could have gotten the limited red vinyl version.
