AUDIO: Tops’ “Outside”


Early last months, I posted a news piece which began this way:
Montreal quartet Tops are making it to the top again with their new album due out on September 2nd called Picture You Staring (Arbutus)..

They (pictured above) are all about pop music and they’re hoping their creations will lead to a greater and deeper audience. If you enjoyed “Way To Be Loved“, you may find this second selection to be appealing too, this one a love ballad. Check out “Outside” and then tune in inside when you opt to pre-order Picture You Staring directlyu from Arbutus, including on cassette.
