It seems like it wasn't too long ago when I stumbled up a little indie rock band from Canada called The Most Serene Republic. In reality, it was over 2 years ago when I first became acquainted with the band, just around the time that their debut album "Underwater Cinematographer" was released on the Arts & Crafts label. To this day, that album has not gotten the recognition that it truly deserves. It was one of 2005's best, and certainly most unappreciated albums. For the first band signed to the label that had absolutely no affiliation to Broken Social Scene, the band shared many similarities with the large and perhaps over-hyped "supergroup." As far as I'm concerned, however, The Most Serene Republic is, and has been for sometime, one of the most talented bands in indie rock today. "Population" only helps solidify this opinion.

If this is your first time hearing of The Most Serene Republic (which it very well could be), it should be noted that the band's approach to making music is very unique. Vocals, though well-performed, are often kept at or below the level of the instrumentation making them sound more like another instrument than the sole focus of the music. And the music itself is erratic as it gets, constantly evolving and erupting out of your speakers. This is largely how it was on their first album, though they take it to a whole other level here! Listening to The Most Serene Republic is a sonic experience, to be sure.

The album begins with "Humble Peasants," a 3 1/2 minute instrumental that really gets things going on the right track. The sounds of violins warming up open up the album nicely, before making way for marimbas, trumpets, scattered percussion, and of course more violins.

This is an album and a band that stands on its own. In an effort to describe their sound I would say mix equal parts of Arcade Fire, Broken Social Scene, Superchunk and a teenage choral group on acid and you have it. It is youthful anarchy with smarts. I have been asking myself why there are so many good Canadian bands these days and the answer is clear in Most Serene. There is an un-self conscious verve with which the members approach their music. It is youthful fun without the fear of being too clever. Hell, I say the smarter the better and this music rewards the listeners with open minds and weary ears desperate for music that isn't a flmisy remake of the past. Welcome to the future. Welcome to Canada.

I hold this record in much the same regard as "OK Computer" or "In Utero", in that it pushes the boundaries of how much beauty you can actually put on a CD. The music is difficult and dark, and it's not for everyone. Cryptic poetry about biology, sociology, and dystopia is paired up with cacophonous arrangements featuring virtuosic keyboard and drum work. Radiohead, Flaming Lips, early Genesis, Rush and Pink Floyd are evoked. But with a orchestra of young people accompanying. Get on CD rather than MP3.

This latest work accurately captures what a fantastic live show this band offers. If you get the chance, see them in concert...either way, you've got to get this!
