The next in the Canadian label's series of extremely low-budget recordings for hi-fi minds. The Cansecos music brings a mix of programmed beats, heavy bass, folktronica-like production and indie rock/pop songsmanship all together on their debut release. Like labelmates the Russian Futurists, the Cansecos also have a heavy Brian Wilsonee vibe to their sound, yet the delivery here is slightly more skewered. This growing Toronto breed of home-recorded underground pop-based music has seen previous successes by the likes of aforementioned Russian Futurists, Manitoba, and Girls Are Short and while the community of hip-hop in the T-dot would like to think they've got the bling-bling game locked in, it seems Toronto is becoming more well-known for its artists' lack of recording funds being the catalyst for their imaginative recordings. Upper Class has become known for its releases of the first two albums by fellow Ontarian The Russian Futurists; albums which have enjoyed critical acclaim both at home and across the seas in the United Kingdom, Japan and Sweden.
