From all the tenderness of Benoit Poirier:
Montreal’s left-field electro-rock scene has been drawing attention since the late Georges Leningrad put it on the map, and then Duchess Says and We Are Wolves took the torch. Meta Gruau fits in this line of fine music providers but sets itself apart with a more constructed form (easy), a plastic poetry and a louder rhythm. And they also proudly silkscreened their 500 CD covers. By integrating uncanny but danceable synths, the whole thing oscillate to either make you move, close in on you or make you feel gazed upon if you pay too much attention. Dance, don’t listen with headphones. But then again, it’s your choice.
