Canada’s Spiral Beach has a unique performance style, putting on wildly interactive shows where the band kicks up their heels with the audience and even are known to cook for the crowd on occasion. These events routinely last until dawn. Now that is Concerts 2.0. Spiral Beach’s new album (The Only Really Thing) hits U.S. shores on 22 September and you can get a sense of their poppy sonic mayhem on this live video for “Domino” that we are premiering today. It’s one of the highlights of the new record. Full release details and an MP3 of the tune are below the jump.

The Toronto group’s sixth album may look like an EP from the song list below, but this is most decidedly a full-length. These songs are quite lengthy and developed, three of them being over 10 minutes each. Hence, there’s no free MP3 of a single song on offer here, but Constellation is offering a mix sampler for your listening pleasure.

SONG LIST
01 Do
02 Make
03 Say
04 Think

Hmm… the rocker makes a record of solo piano tunes and he says he wants them to sound like songs he’d be playing in a car. There’s a video to try to explain this. But then he is a classically trained musician, so perhaps he’ll pull it off in the end.
