Les Georges Leningrad Sangue Puro

Montreal's art-rock freaks are back with another installment of weirdness, this time sounding surprisingly normal. Though still infatuated with antics (check "Lonely Lonely" for true absurdity), overall this LP feels less like an art piece and more like "regular" post-punk. Perhaps this reflects a move away from the production-oriented aesthetic of their earlier Black Eskimo towards a more live sound; too bad it didn't go the other way around. Though salvaged by interesting moments such as "The Future for Less" and "Eli Eli," by and large Sangue Puro seems like a step backwards.
