Bodysongs: the new album from Canadian band Born Gold

The long-awaited full-length from this Canadian outfit (formerly Gobble Gobble) is a giddy, unrelenting pop masterpiece — everything that’s sinfully sweet about the FM dial cranked up to 13 and Cuisinarted by the warped and brilliant mind of songwriter Cecil Frena.

Bodysongs is one of the best and most criminally under-discussed records of the year, and does a solid job of capturing the remarkable high-energy euphoria of a Born Gold live show. You’ll come out the other side dazed and grinning.
