Duplex are so wholesome. I bet they eat organic vegetables and use earth-friendly cleaning supplies. Composed of art-folk ace Veda Hille, her Vancouver music luminary pals and their kids, all of whom live together in the eponymous dwelling, Duplex make rad kid-oriented music about happy things like house pets and times tables. It's little more than a novelty, but a completely worthy and high-quality novelty, and I'd definitely play this for the hipper kids in my life. I'm jealous of the Duplex young'uns, though. They'll probably grow up all emotionally stable and loving themselves and stuff from all this creative validation. Imagine that.
