Exclaim! mag is reporting the Chad Vangaalen-affiliated, super-keen Calgary combo Women called it quits Friday night during a show in Victoria. They’ve cancelled the rest of their Canadian tour (including a planned show last night in Vancouver), but their label, Flemish Eye, told Exclaim! that “there are no plans to cancel other upcoming dates,” all of which are in Europe.
If the band can’t get it together to carry, they leave two superlative albums: 2008’s Women and 2010’s Public Strain. In a recent prairie dog, James Brotheridge said of Public Strain, “Listeners will be pushed, challenged and ultimately rewarded with jagged but appealing songs.” Go read his review and then download “Eyesore” (mp3 courtesy Flemish Eye) and know that he speaks the truth.
