Sloan, ‘Never Hear the End of It’ (Yep Roc)
These Canadian power-pop wizards routinely write songs with dozens of parts. Now they’ve written an album with dozens of songs. Never Hear the End of It, Sloan’s eighth studio full-length, contains 30 separate tunes — evidence of their bottomless bag of hooks, as well as a testament to endless Canadian winters, when leaving the studio ain’t much of an option. The result plays like the greatest British Invasion best-of you’ve never heard. Reach in and pull out anything; even the so-so ones are gone in 60 seconds.
