    Picked up this album on Record Store Day on a total whim - I was drawn immediately to the admittedly weird cover art, and to the fact that it was in a box labeled "Canadian - Local". I'm a sucker for anything locally crafted, and once I saw that the entire album was the work of only three people, I couldn't resist taking the album home.

    I've listened to this album a few times since then and I'm absolutely charmed by how upbeat, fun, and interesting it is. Synthetic Properties is an album that knows what its sound is, and it's very clearly crafted with a loving hand. Many of the tracks are instrumental, but the few that have vocalizations/lyrics are very pleasing. I find that both type of track are equally enjoyable to listen to, and there is a lovely cohesion on the album as a whole.

    Although every song gets me wigglin', my favourites are probably Computer Chess and Synapses. There's something just delightfully fun about these two that always make me want to dance!

    All in all, I'd definitely recommend giving this album a listen; it's been an absolute pleasure to play for friends and family, and I'm very happy it caught my eye!
