Continuum se dévoile au fil des écoutes comme une collection d’irrésistibles petits classiques et surtout comme un album particulièrement bien construit qui monte peu à peu en puissance” – Indie Rock Mag

Indie Rock Mag out of France continues to show love to Backburner, giving their new album the #7 spot and a great review on their Best of February & March list. See below for the review and list rankings from Rabbit and Riton…

And here is the translated review from the very helpful Google Translate:

7 years after the fabulous Eclipse, the coolest Canadian indie rap collective in the galaxy is finally back with a third opus where we immediately recognize the string productions of Fresh Kills, MisterE and Uncle Fester, among others. Less impressive at first glance than its two predecessors, Continuum reveals itself over the course of listening as a collection of irresistible little classics and above all as a particularly well-constructed album which gradually gains in power, oscillating as always between old school relaxation borrowing from the rock (Continuum) or funk (Best Night Ever) as well as African and Asian music (Spice Rack) or jazzy soundtracks (The MacKay Bridge is Over), and this more baroque nerdism with minimalist and atypical cinematographic samples that the residents of the label Hand'Solo Records are fond of (Juiced Crew, Press Eject, Razor Blades), to better pick us up when we no longer expected it with one of these tense and threatening choral hymns of which they also have the secret (Mystery Machine, It’s Going Down, Tiny Death Threats). You really have to take the time to get into this record, in short, which is gradually shifting towards the dark side and whose second half literally explodes the first, where the playful and singular flows of rappers, from Timbuktu to Jesse Dangerously to Wordburglar or More or Les, are once again a marvel of efficiency and inventiveness mixed together.
