On the Horizon: Konnichiwa, Pyongyang.

Masquerading as North Korean P-Funk revivalists, Montréal's Pyongyang do anything but suppress the Québécois city's impressive indie appeal. Indeed, the pairing comprising Marco Santos and Antonio Pavao Pereira are churning some of the most darn jolty post-funk outta there or anywhere. Weardown bears the rashes of a scrap with Islet, its supple bass tones tended to with thick cowbell thwacks; its atonal vocals fed through a deep dub filter.

Though it's the provocative, seemingly !!!-stimulated frenzy-funks of Get Up that totally dictate the individual with syncopated prowess. Thoroughly fun, first and foremost.
