This Toronto laptop duo composed of Jeffrey Addison and Gavin Rough have been steadily building buzz all year, but they’ve slavishly worked on this project for much longer. Their years of effort are reflected in a pristine debut that’s as catchy as it is well crafted.

Drawing on elements of synth pop, disco, electro and rock, TMDP capture the Justice aesthetic at times but are not bound to it. Track Too Much is introspective, with delay-heavy guitars, while their shamelessly self-titled TMDP is a thumping, hook-laden floor-filler ready for clubs in Paris or New York. The nine tracks here make a super-strong collection. These guys are way too good not to blow up.

Top track: TDMP

TDMP play Supermarket Friday (November 21).
