Kid Canaveral - Faulty Inner Dialogue
The give and take between classic power pop and electro-pop commences in the first track, "Gun Fhaireachdain". The following "First We Take Dumbarton is galloping power pop, and classic Kid Canaveral. It also should be on everyone's playlist. "Tragic Satellite" is chiming, glistening guitar pop. A dreamy instrumental interlude comes courtesy of "Ten Milligrams", which leads to one of the sneaky masterpieces of the album for my money, "Callous Parting Gift". Other highlights for me are the surging "Lifelong Crisis of Confidence", the sweet synth pop "Listen to Me", and the epic "Lives Never Lived". Thematically, the we find the band in the mood for refection. But whether you also are inclined to reflect, or just want some stellar guitar pop, Faulty Inner Dialogue delivers.
Kid Canaveral are David MacGregor (vocals/guitar), Kate Lazda (guitar/vocals), Rose McConnachie (bass/vocals), Scott McMaster (drums), and Michael Craig (keys). Faulty Inner Dialogue is out now via Lost Map.
