Picastro: Become Secret

Dark without being cartoonish or goth, delicate without being merely pretty, stark without being dourly ascetic, this Toronto band has made its masterpiece.

The third album from Toronto singer-songwriter Liz Hysen's group is experimental and darkly lovely in equal measure.
