Every once in a while a local band surprises, and This Hisses would be my latest pleasant Winnipeg-bred surprise. Rockin' surfer guitar turns art-damaged and then metallic, drums laying back in a soft shuffle one minute then jumping up and playing standing up the next, garage blues voice launches itself into dramatic gothic vocals and flips upward into operatic soaring. The band's second album, Anhedonia, came out a few days ago, and their release party is tonight at the West End Cultural Centre with Pop Crimes And Slow Dancer.
