In 2019 Toronto’s Ducks Ltd. released their debut EP with four fine jangle pop songs, whose title track in particular was a favorite in my Stranded In The Jangle playlist on Spotify. Now an expanded re-issue is out, digitally and on clear 12″ vinyl through Carpark Records. The updated version of Get Bleak has three additional bonus tracks: Oblivion, As Big As All Outside (watch / listen below), and It’s Easy. The mini-album has 7 songs in less than 22 minutes, still much too short, because Tom Mcgreevy & Evan David Lewis write and play guitar music that you can’t get enough of; further expansion is actually needed, but if all goes well more Ducks Ltd. music will follow on this label soon. RIYL The Go-Betweens, Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever, Smokescreens.
“In the next apartment I hear a woman sing // The DJ plays the 12 inch mix of “Vision Thing” // I’m all the way out”
