Boomkat Product Review:
Broken Social Scene's lead guitarist Andrew Whiteman returns to his Apostle of Hustle side-project for a second album. This time round Whiteman's less hung up on the influence of Cuban music, writing an album of tight - though occasionally funky - indie rock. The pulsing electronic kick drums of lead single 'My Sword Hand's Anger' sets the album in motion, its understated melodies and squelchy basslines making for a tentative opening. Far more instantly gratifying is the album's title track, which musically sounds every bit as though it could have been lifted from Radiohead's Hail To The Thief, replete with sophisticated, frosty guitar lines and a rock-solid rhythm section. Similarly excellent are 'Cheap Like Sebastien', a prime slice of Canadian pop with the added bonus of some spacey organ textures and 'Chances Are', which benefits from a Shins-like upbeat pop loveliness. A classy indie rock opus and no mistake, National Anthem Of Nowhere is right up there with the best of the Broken Social Scene offshoot projects.
