Guelph's female-led indie kids the Barmitzvah Brothers may have the most misleading band name in Canada. Their latest album is conceptually about jobs, either those they have experience with or the kind they have some fanciful interest in.
Songs like Piano Tuner, Show Promoter and Thrift Store Owner -- an ode to the band's birthplace -- are fairly self-explanatory. However, Rodeo Clown, Excavator Operator and Relay Operator could be about anything, and it becomes hard to care through all 19 tracks. In fact, getting through this, especially Jenny Mitchell's monotonously cute song-poems and others that sound written on the spot, becomes a type of work. Co-singer Geordie Gordon explores his pop skills on Sign Erector and Traffic Technician, which are like your coffee break from this album.
