Lethbridge, Alberta's Myelin Sheaths first caught my ear with a single on HoZac that perked interest but didn't leave prickled expectations at the time. The single was rough and bratty enough but lacked a spark that kept my rapt attention. I missed out on a similarly timed single on
Austrian imprint Bachelor Records and thought nothing of it. However I've been decidedly remiss as the band's upcoming full length has pole vaulted over those initial expectations to ignite like a garage pop cherry bomb on the turntable. Its still got rough edges and bratty motions but they're steeped in catchy harmonies and redlined back and forth vocals that feel untethered and fun as hell. Definitely seems like one to catch live and a repeat listen on the home system for sure.
