DESCRIPTION

AVERAGE TIMES’ self titled debut LP perfectly blends the band’s self stated influences like The OBLIVIANS, JAY REATARD and the MEAN JEANS with a more disguised dosage of MANIKINS and MARKED MEN, all the while proving (along with fellow coconspirators NEW SWEARS) that Ottawa’s already prolific garage punk explosion is anything but a flash in the pan.
Recorded with local studio owner and DIY showspace runner Paul “Yogi” Grainger (WHITE WIRES, STEVE ADAMYK BAND, MOTHER´S CHILDREN, ZEBRASSIERS, etc), and mixed with Ian Showalter (DAGGER EYES, WHITE WIRES, PREGNANCY SCARES). AVERAGE TIMES comes in with a bang and leaves well before overstaying its welcome.
With hooks as poignant as these, the band is smart to bury them beneath layers of fuzz and distortion, lest they become too quickly disguised as the bona fide pop anthems they’re built upon. Above all else, AVERAGE TIMES is unabashedly fun. Weird Canada calls this record “the audio equivalent of a devious and mischievous 12-yr-old with a slingshot”, while Ottawa Showbox says “their high tempo makes you want to listen to them as you skateboard on a hot summer day”!
No matter how you take that, AVERAGE TIMES is sure to cut the deep frost long overdue from Ottawa to your turntable!!!
