Tomorrow Starts Today

[3.5/5]





Canada is, like, so hot right now. It won’t be long before labels start dragging their omnivorous nets through the lesser depths of the country’s music scene. Get ready for a wave of Canuck bush-leaguers with European affectations and Americanized populist ambition. Thankfully, Mobile, while derivative, rise above the B-level with Tomorrow Starts Today. Two seconds into the blazing title track-all propulsive, jerky dance beats, dark waves of down stroke guitar and snotty call and response vocals-you’ll find your new summer jam. (Note to friends: Expect to find this on all my future playlists.) Sure, Mobile say they’re influenced by the Cure and New Order (yawn), and the record is all slick production-mainstream modern rock for the coked-up photoblog set-but when the choruses are this big and fun, who cares about original? Original is never this easy to dance to, anyway. (THE MILITIA GROUP) Luke O’Neil
