Hailing from Ottawa, The Steve Adamyk Band have been stalwarts on the Canadian underground scene for the some time now. Steve Adamyk started the band (obviously) to highlight his solo material after stints in The Million Dollar Marxists and Sedatives. The group is now set to release their fourth LP, Dial Tone, on July 1 (CANADA DAY!) via Dirtnap Records.
The group has always been adept at blending 70’s British punk with 80’s power pop. However, on Dial Tone they opt for a more garage rock sound that’s probably best described as trash-pop. Whatever you call it, the results are 13 blistering songs over 28 minutes. It’s a collection of fast, catchy, and hard-hitting jams that connect right away. I could listen to tunes like Careless, M.R.I., and Crash Course In Therapy on an endless loop. This is a band operating at its peak powers and if you love power pop, you need this record. You can stream the whole album now and then pre-order the new LP.
