Purity Ring - FineshrineThe Canadian duo Purity Ring was born in 2011 when Corin Roddick (production) and Megan James (vocals) joined forces to produce the track "Ungirthed." In late July, they released their debut album Shrines to near-ubiquitous critical praise, and in my opinion, it has been warranted. When Roddick's unearthly productions are combined with James' macabre and disturbing lyrics, something just clicks. After a couple weeks of repeated listenings, I'm confident in saying that they've released one of the best records of the year thus far, and I can't recommend it highly enough. Take a listen to "Fineshrines," a track that I feel is one of group's strongest offerings, and if you like what you hear, it's a safe bet that you'll be completely enamored with the entire album.
