Limblifter is a Canadian alternative rock band from Vancouver, formed in 1996. The group was originally formed by brothers Ryan Dahle and Kurt Dahle, as a side project from their main band, The Age Of Electric , along with a third member, Ian Somers.

It’s been over a decade since Vancouver pop-rock act Limblifter graced us with an album, 2004’s I/O being their last since this year’s Pacific Milk, out this week.

The band originally founded in 1996 by brothers Ryan and Kurt Dahle (the latter also formerly of The New Pornographers) has seen quite the changes over the years, most notable a re-configuration that sees the band now comprise Ryan Dahle, Gregory Macdonald, Eric Breitenbach and Megan Bradfield. Yet one thing is for sure: Limblifter have not lost their knack for crafting some seriously infectious rock songs.

Pacific Milk is rife with jaunty pop-inflected tunes ready-made for the summer ahead. Opening tune Cast A Net opens with the snap and crackle of castagnettes, and the album rolls through a series of 13 songs featuring everything from harmonicas (Moods of Mechanics), vintage keyboards (Under The Riot, the Mellotron-heavy vignette I Deleted You), and boy-girl harmonies and strings (Suspended).

The guitar and bass riffs that dominate Pacific Milk often sport a touch of exoticism, borrowing from dub and Caribbean roots (Dopamine, Key Of Karavana), giving the album a sun-splashed twist.

The second half of the album is arguably where Limblifter offers its strongest material, with Position Open standing as one of the best tunes on offer. If variety is the spice of life, Pacific Milk is an entire market stand worth of flavours, making this a solid, compelling return.
