Tournament of Hearts

A-

Beneath all the grunge and grime of the Toronto rockers’ third record, Tournament of Hearts, shines the sonic salve to soothe the workingman’s soul. Singer Bry Webb ignites his burning Bruce-esque brood into an explosive wail amid the quintet’s propulsive Springsteen-meets-Fugazi assault. The buzz-saw haze of guitars oozes into irresistible thundering hooks on ramshackle blue-collar anthems like ”Love in Fear” and ”Soon Enough.” They’re maximum ragers for minimum wagers.
