Persian Rugs - This Is OK For Now

Toronto's Persian Rugs cover the floor from wall to wall, window to door.  Noise pop, jangle pop, dream pop, punk, and a dose of twee.  Their album, This Is OK For Now, was released in 2014, but it doesn't seem to have received the coverage it deserves.  The tastemakers at Jigsaw records discovered it on the internet, and offered to re-release it.  So all eight tracks now are available in digital and CD formats.

The album kicks off with a rush of noise pop via "Bedhead".  "I Wanted Something More" delivers bubbling pop with a current of jangle.  Standout track "Naked" brings '60s girl group sounds up to current status.  The mood becomes sweet for "Cotton Candy", then picks up for an ode an affliction of the young - "Underemployed".  The album closes with three dreamy jangle pop gems: "Falling Through The Floor" and "Comic Book Dreams".  This is a wonderful little album to brighten you mood.  You deserve it, don't you?

Persian Rugs are Ali, Ian, Kaye, and Matt.
