New and Notable Releases

Rating: NNN

Fabulously named Toronto singer/songwriter Jack Breakfast makes wry, jangly, angular, mostly piano-based bedsit pop, which places him in the good company of folks like Dan Bryk, Stephin Merritt and, at least from a cheek point of view, the Jazz Butcher. Better still, Breakfast’s furtive sidelong glances at the world — delivered conversationally in an occasionally tuneless but weirdly charming warble — wink right at you. Rock And Roll Album gets a proper release at Graffiti’s Friday (March 23) or visit www.jackbreakfast.com
