Midge: Still Receiver

Toronto based Midge, aka the duo of Olivia Fetherstonhaugh and Shane Turner have released their debut EP Still Receiver on Utah indie UR AudioVisual. The five tracks are enticing dream pop/indie rock in the vein of artists like Tennis, where the guitar drives the arrangements, which are positioned around the lead vocal. With so much of the genre being a bit pablum, it is nice to hear this EP going an edgier direction. Interesting arrangements and a changing palette of dynamics are the highlight, where commercialism is sacrificed for a stronger rock persona. This is a great debut and showcases a duo on the verge.
