Tireless Sedans – Score One For The Underdog (Superbob Records)

Moncton band Tireless Sedans finally get around to following up their 2008 EP with ten songs that while beautifully played, see the record start off a wee on the subdued side. This isn’t a negative by any means; having heard comparisons that laid anywhere between Wilco and Sloan (a broad range, I know), I was expecting a little more punch right off the bat however the trio of songs that start the record compliment the simple arrangements and Dave Rahmer’s voice rather nicely. Things pick up nicely with the tracks Planning My Escape and Half As Great and see the album’s momentum continue upward from there.
