Like many of you, I first heard Ubiquitious Synergy Seeker when 102.1 started playing the mess out of "Hollowpoint Sniper Hyperbole" about six years ago. I loved that single, caught them live a few times and scored myself a copy of Welding the C:/.
I loved every track on Welding the C:/. This Parkdale-based duo rocks a sound that totally appeals to my sensibilities. It's this unique rap / rock / folk / electronica hybrid I can't seem to get enough of.
Questamation was great. Approved was great. And now I'm enjoying their new album, Advanced Basics. You likely heard "This is the Best" a million times on 102.1 or "Yin Yang" on the radio and TSN's NHL playoff coverage. Here's the official video for the extremely catch "Yin Yang".
I don't care whether it's cool to like USS or why they're not a bigger deal, all I know is that when I need to get my heart pumping and my feet pedalling, nothing does the trick faster than throwing on a tune from these guys.
