New Canadiana :: Mavo – Mavo 7″


Weird_Canada-Mavo-7

Montreal-via-Lethbridge-via-Osaka’s Mitz Takahashi is a modern day renaissance man: carpenter, comedian and C86 fuzz-pop aficionado. On this long-percolating 7”, he and Mavo bandmate Conor Prendergast (Brave Radar, Fixture co-CEO) twist out three immaculately crafted tunes that were well worth the wait. Mitz’s self-aware humour is placed on the front burner with hooky jangle serving as backdrop for lyrical/musical nods to the Fall, Velvets, and the life of an international slacker. “Hey white boy, what you doin’ in Chinatown? Hey white boy, what you doin’ in Parc-Ex?”

Entre Montréal, Lethbridge et Osaka, Mitz Takahashi est un homme de la Renaissance contemporaine : il est charpentier, comédien et amateur de fuzz-pop C86. Sur ce 7” longuement filtré, lui et son acolyte de Mavo, Conor Prendergast (Brave Radar, co-PDG de Fixture), offrent trois chansons parfaitement confectionnées qui se révèlent en avoir valu l’attente. L’humour d’autodérision de Mitz est mis de l’avant, et les cliquetis accrocheurs servent de toile de fond aux clins d’œil lyriques et musicaux faits à the Fall, aux Velvets et à un mode de vie de fainéant international. “Hey white boy, what you doin’ in Chinatown? Hey white boy, what you doin’ in Parc-Ex?”
