Funky and weird, glitchy and smooth, Royal Canoe’s newest release, the full-length Today We’re Believers, is a strange amalgam of sounds, rhythms, and genres.

“We make pop music for people who don’t like people.” This is the repeated refrain on “We Make Pop Music,” the second of the two new tracks on the new Art Brut release, Top Of The Pops. Simultaneously mission statement and call to arms, Eddie Argos’s sing along misanthropy rings just the right note between sarcasm and sincerity. Top Of The Pops is a two-disc “best of” release to celebrate ten years of the weird and oft acclaimed European rock band, and what a fantastic collection to celebrate with.
