The experimental Toronto group New Fries released two records in 2016. Now they’re back, with a slightly different line-up. Is the Idea of Us comes out on Telephone Explosion next month and was recorded together with Carl Didur who used to be in U.S. Girls. Two singles have appeared so far, the tightly wound “Ploce” and most recenty “Arendt / Adler / Pulley Pulley Pulley Pulley” that – may we guess – references Hannah Arendt and Alfred Adler? The whole album explores repetition and noise, especially on the seven interludes titled “Genre”. This is a big step forward for the band.
