THE RUSSIAN FUTURISTS - Me, Myself and Rye

russian%20futurists-me%20myself%20rye.jpgThe work of The Russian Futurists' Matthew Hart has always been pure pop, minus the distractions of heady high-concepts. He even says as much on lead track "Let's Get Ready To Crumble": "I do pop 'cause that's how my heart goes/ I don't call it art/ no sir". That's not to say he isn't smart, as this 13-track career overview proves. A greatest hits compilation after only three albums can be argued premature, but Me, Myself and Rye serves as an excellent intro to this Toronto treasure. Pop music of the highest order, it's well-worth discovering for the first time (or all over again).
