Perpetual Motion Machine

EW's GRADE
B+

Details Lead Performance: 13 Engines

On their fourth issue, Perpetual Motion Machine (Atlantic) critically acclaimed (at home, at least) Toronto-based outfit ably mines the guitar-rock lexicon, echoing sounds from '60s London to '80s Seattle. Okay, so it's not unusual for north-of-the-border artists to betray a healthy reverence for British and American pop. It's refreshing, though, to see them wear that influence more up their sleeve than on it. B+
