"Give me a call down at the club: 669--6969," sings Jordy Birch, former lead singer of Vancouver band Pure.

With lyrics like these, you know it's going to be an interesting ride with Birch's solo debut, Funmachine. Although probably not a contender for album of the year, you've got to give the guy some credit-his tunes are catchy. Listeners easily lip-synch the first single, "Moola, Moola," in cars across Canada as we speak.

Their lyrics have matured and they've managed to tug just a bit harder on our heartstrings.

The Anniversary's sophomore full-length, Your Majesty, proves to be just as fun and even more bittersweet than their debut, Designing a Nervous Breakdown. They've shifted away from their synth-pop, Rentals-influenced sound to a slightly more guitar-driven album-with obvious exceptions on the vintage-esque tracks,"Peace, Pain and Regret", and "Never Die Young."
