VANCOUVER – Featuring prickly vocals reminiscent of Mother Mother’s Ryan Guldemond and enough bar band riffs to warrant the price of admission, Phono Pony’s Death by Blowfish is an enjoyable listen, if a little on the simple and straightforward side. The choruses are catchy, the guitars are crunchy, and the rhythm section is tight. If you’re not moved by alternative rock this isn’t going to change your mind, but for the converted it’s just what the doctor ordered. Standouts include “Tattoo of My Face” and “Take It From Me.”
