Bravestation - 2010 EP (2010)

We don't have an EP section in the QuickCrit Music Survey, but if we did, I think this would probably take my top spot. These four dudes out of Toronto lace pleasant vocal harmonies over rhythmic, indie synth pop for a combination that is both winsome and dreamy. The sound is super clean with hints of Yeasayer's creativity and folk-influenced fun. "White Wolves" is probably the catchiest of the tracks, but the other 4 are all enjoyable and well-balanced. With two EPs under their belt, 2011 may be the right time to release a full-length offering. After thoroughly enjoying these stellar tracks for the last few months of the year, I will be ready for some new tunes courtesy of Bravestation.
