First Transmission: Corridor, Topographe.

Reminiscent of Animal Collective’s vibrant polychromy and compatriots Malajube’s francophone cacophony in equivalent measure, Topographe – from Québecois quartet Corridor – gives every indication as to why their forthcoming Junior full-length is coming forth on the seminal Sub Pop label. Brimming with a brazen abandon, as much as it may be inflated by effervescent freshness, there is so too a scent of North American art-rock’s mid-to-late-noughties zenith (think the likes of Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Dirty Projectors, Sunset Rubdown, and so on) which clings to a track that’s as concise as the timeframe Junior was written within. Vive la vitalité!

Junior is available from October 18th via Sub Pop.
