Happy Trendy, Die Young

Edmonton, Canada's Happy Trendy have released this slippery, sliding small EP for free download on Bandcamp, although you can shoot them some cash if you want to support their upcoming European tour with Foxes in Fiction. The EP is completely low-fi soft pop, with a good measure of cheer and an even larger measure of audio distortion in the background to keep the saccharine at arm's length. My favorite song is the title track, with an almost shouted chant over sparse electronics. Listen here, and download if you want, and shoot them a donation if you want and if you are in Europe, go check them out at the dates below.
