Given its vivid imagery, euphoric melodies, and incomparable gift for turning tragedy into empathy, it’s fairly easy to call TOUCHÉ AMORÉ’s Stage Four one of the year’s best records. If you’re not entirely convinced, then you might want to make it out to one of their shows. Jeremy Bolm and co. played Toronto’s Mod Club Theatre on Tuesday (October 18th) — with CULTURE ABUSE and TINY MOVING PARTS in tow — and their 22-song set hit home as they blasted through new keepsakes (“Palm Dreams”, “Flowers And You”), Is Survived By, Parting The Sea, and the tour de force that is “Gravity, Metaphorically”. It’s hard to put it all into words so check out our photos above (via Seita Goto).
