Get it? I knew you would. Who doesn’t like a little Bono dig, Canada style now and then? Here’s the deal: recycling is in, and music is no exception. 40 Watt Monkey recycles Ottawa musicians (ex – Jimmy George, Whirleygigs, Gonks Go Beat) and mid-eighties thinking dude’s guitar rock (R.E.M., The Replacements). Jangly riffs abound in this verse-chorus-verse template for sure fire college radio staples, that blends perfectly with your dusty vinyl collection to boot. Takes a couple of listens but once the cobwebs are shaken you will be stirred.
