Deeper than the aqueducts

In non-stripped-down form
Whenever I’ve seen Vancouver’s Role Mach live, the lineup has included a horn section assisting the band in lengthy psych-infused circus punk jams. But “Montana” is totally stripped back, featuring a guitar playing chiming licks while a bassist and drummer lay down a simple, steady rhythm. Combine that with some Lou Reed-esque vocals and a wordless hook and you’ve got an effectively understated winner.

This one comes from CiTR Pop Alliance Compilation, Vol. 2, which came out via Mint. I wrote about it for Exclaim! (twice).
