Boomkat Product Review:
Vancouver's No Kids are a mere trio who have nonetheless recorded a debut album of considerable scope and finesse, recruiting the supporting talents of a further nine musicians, apparently with some thanks due to a Canadian government grant. It sounds like the extra cash paid off, because Come Into My House enjoys rich and varied arrangements, charged with strings, horns and even a bit of electronica. You might make a comparison to the more exuberantly lavish sequences on Vampire Weekend's debut, or the chamber-sized orchestrations of Sufjan Stevens, particularly on tracks like the beautiful opener 'Great Escape' or 'I Love The Weekend' (presumably not an explicit dedication to the New York band). There's a bit of a music hall feel to some of the material here too: 'Four Freshmen Locked Out As The Sun Goes Down' has a bit of a barbershop quartet-style swagger, while 'Old Iron Gate' exhibits a likeable showtunes-y element. Thanks to all the additional instrumentation, you lose a sense that there's the core of a rock band at the heart of this album, so consequently No Kids have managed to make an exciting, varied debut without really letting you know what they themselves are playing at any given time. Quite an odd release in some respects then, but an enormously entertaining one.
