My latest obsession: You Say Party! We Say Die!

yspwsd_xxxx_1You Say Party! We Say Die! have been dominating my iPod for the past week now. The Abbotsford, B.C. band’s new album XXXX is a killer—it’s new-wave rock wearing a sexy red evening gown while battling dragons.

YSP! WSD! have reinvented themselves with this aforementioned style of new-wave rock, and personally I think it’s a step in the right direction. XXXX is brilliant. Becky Ninkovic sings like an angel trapped in the hollows, while the rest of the band paints a backdrop filed with bright and often caustic emotions.

“There Is XXXX (Within My Heart)” kicks off the album, a haunting yet poignant piece that is incredibly addictive. “Glory” highlights their signature punk punch. “Lonely’s Lunch” sounds like Ninkovic is channeling Stevie Nicks.

You can listen to these tracks (in the order outlined) below:

XXXX was produced by Howard Redekopp (Tegan And Sara, The New Pornographers) and recorded between January and August of 2009. The album is out today on Paper Bag Records.
