Mantler "Fresh and Fair"
A shuffle of distorted, percussive noise starts off this smooth diddy from Toronto's subtle and smooth crooner Chris Cummings (a.k.a. Mantler). While the singer-songwriter waxes poetic on the pitfalls of love, Jeremy Greenspan (of Junior Boys) provides some slow-grooving beats to serve as the soulful backdrop of "Fresh and Fair." All in all, the song comes off sounding like it could be an actual Junior Boys number, but with Cummings' forlorn baritone traded out for Greenspan's usual falsetto.
