      Description:

      The debut release from The Cansecos.

      "With their debut album they've managed to take the most heard-before generic downloadable electro-sounds and employ them in their absolute, best-possible ultimate uses ever, period." – Cokemachineglow

      "I don't know what's caused this sudden run of creativity in Toronto, but ingenuity seems to run in the blood of the musicians there, from collectives like Broken Social Scene and Do Make Say Think to loners like Manitoba and The Russian Futurists. The Cansecos fit somewhere in between all that stuff; the work of sometime filmmaker Bill Halliday (no relation to the Toronto Blue Jays pitcher Roy) and Upper Class label head Gareth Jones (not the guy who produced Clinic's Internal Wrangler ) is decidedly rooted in solid, straightforward melody, and branches from those roots into strange and distinctive sonic territory, a whirring mix of the obsolete and the absolutely modern.

      There are plenty of BBC Radiophonic Workshop synths winding and warbling their way through the textures The Cansecos create-- "This Small Disaster" even borders on microtonalism with its buzzing, wavering patches-- and much of what the duo does parallels the work of Dan Snaith's Manitoba in terms of dynamics and sonics, respectively. This album was recorded between 2000 and 2002, and as such it's difficult to pinpoint exactly what they were taking in; regardless, they've made such a complete and accessible whole out of it that they can call the sound their own. With luck, it'll take less than two whole years for The Cansecos to dream up a follow-up to this incredibly promising debut, but even if it does, this album pushes just a little further in pop's great infinite, and definitely deserves to be heard." - pitchforkmedia.com (8.2)
