Every now and then an album drops that I can hardly believe is Canadian; Sissy’s March of the Humans falls into this category. A Toronto duo comprised of singer Johanne Williams’ vocals and the electronic soundscapes of David Trusz, Sissy’s March of the Humans is like what would happen if the U.K.’s Portishead met Iceland’s Biosphere and recorded an album in an underground bunker during a war. From songs All a Waste, Imminent Rampage and Acid Cake, for example – you’ll get no sense of Can rock niceties or mildly contrived electronic floatiness. Here the instrumental tones are clearly inspired by the classics – Aphex Twin, Autechre and Nine Inch Nails are all evoked – but wash perfectly around Williams’ chilling delivery. In short, March of the Humans sounds like the album Portishead never made, without relinquishing Sissy’s own identity. It’s fundamentally deep, dark, current and entirely alien.
