Canadian trio Les Jupes have delivered a highly enjoyable album in Modern Myths and one that will reward those who seek it out. Recorded over a year and a half when Montreal producer/ engineer Marcus Paquin (frontman of Last Gang s Silver Starling) found time from working on Arcade Fire s The Suburbs, it s an eclectic listen that s both intimate and pounding. Throughout, Michael Petkau Falk s baritone vocals provide an endearing accompaniment rising to the album s liveliest occasions, while offering something brooding and/or thoughtful during its quieter ones. The album is compulsive, occasionally rocky but always interesting even during songs that perhaps don t satisfy as much as the LP s fi nest efforts. It s a damn fi ne effort, in fact, from a band that look set to become one of Canada s most intriguing and complex acts.
