Strange Attractor, Real Dark Place from the album Back To The Cruel World.
The Northern Ontario town of Sudbury isn't really known for turning out top-tier rock acts. But for punk rock lifer Jeff Houle, it's the perfect backdrop for his '70s-throwback pop act Strange Attractor, whose third LP, Back to the Cruel World, is streaming below ahead of its November 15 release through Mammoth Cave/FDH Records/Resurrection Records.
Conceived in the same lo-fi squalor as all good garage acts, on their newest release, Houle delivers an Angry Samoans-meets-Ty Segall sound filled with acidic riffs ("Anything"), pub-infected mod rock ("I'm Trying to Wake You Up"), and Guided By Voices pep ("Hot Dog Water"). There are also three songs with "shit" in the title, so there's that. -- Exclaim!
