Incredible 3rd LP from Iggy Pops favourite Canadian powerpop garage punkers with 15 songs of melodic scuzzed up pop.

'Tube Reducer' follows 2017's double whammy of their self-titled debut and its gnarlier-than-thou follow-up 'Weekend Rocker' And guess what? It's more of the good stuff.

In fact it could well be their best record so far. Sonically, you should know what to expect by now - a disregard for fidelity; songs that sound way more effortlessly simple than they necessarily are; melodies that'll burrow their way into your head even as you fight through the fuzz to make out what the hell vocalist Alex Mitchell is actually singing_ 'Stevie Cool' is the bona fide winner this time - the scuzzed-out powerpop anthem to end all scuzzed-out powerpop anthems - but there's not a bad cut on offer here.

'Nothing Good' blazes by in a fit of nail-biting energy and hooks so razor-sharp you could use 'em to cut through sheet metal, and if you've not donned your pogo-ing shoes to throw yourself between the walls of your house when 'Life As A Fed' kicks in_ well shit, man, do you even punk rock? By the utterly batshit closer 'Moto-Hard' they've even thrown a brass section into the mix, skronking away cheerily and deliriously like Flipper's 'Sex Bomb' running the wrong way up an escalator.
