ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Two Hours Traffic doesn’t pull any punches with their second full-length, Little Jabs (Bumstead Records). Joel Plaskett returns to the producer’s chair on Little Jabs, which packs a wallop with eleven captivating tracks that blur the line between folk rock and powerful pop. The video for their seasonal anthem, “Stuck for the Summer,” is currently in rotation on MuchMusic and the band is hitting the Trans-Canada to bring their unparalleled pop sensibilities to the masses. Unabashedly catchy and sincere, Two Hours Traffic is deservedly at the fore of the Canadian Maritime pop revival and Little Jabs will only solidify that position.

Two Hours Traffic began in 2003 when former kindergarten colleagues Liam Corcoran and Alec O’Hanley recruited fellow University of PEI chemistry students Andrew MacDonald and Derek Ellis. After the better part of a year, the group released an EP entitled The April Storm (Independent). This record caught the ear of acclaimed Halifax guitar hero Joel Plaskett, who immediately offered to produce the group’s first full-length album. When not breaking Erlenmeyer flasks, the group managed to pen and record an anthemic eponymous full length album.

Recorded while the band was still in their teens, their second album Two Hours Traffic (Independent) recalls the eccentricity of The Cars and the immediacy of Big Star. People took to the songs without hesitation: Limelight fueled some hottub drama on The OC, Better Sorry Than Safe edged out indie-rock mainstays Broken Social Scene and The Constantines on CBC Radio 3's 2005 year-end list, and the album was nominated for Best Rock Recording at the 2006 East Coast Music Awards. While their debut full length album was a magnet for critical accolades, their peers began to take notice as well; Two Hours Traffic toured Canada extensively with the likes of Wintersleep, The Joel Plaskett Emergency and The Golden Dogs.

The 2006 release of their second EP, Isolator (Independent), signified the band’s arrival as accomplished songwriters. More critical acclaim followed and the disc received a 2007 ECMA nomination for Best Alternative Album. Two Hours Traffic has gladly left behind the ivory towers of higher education for less dignified pursuits.

Simply great
This is a great album from beginning to end. This is what pop rock should sound like. If you are sad that the Format is no longer making music please give this band a try. Look up their videos on Youtube as well.

Love the cd. It is a great album to listen to anytime.

Why can;t we have bands like this in America??
This is a great record. The songs are clever and melodic without being derivative. The production is stripped down and uncluttered to support the songs. Every song on this record has a monster hook that sticks with you for days. The guitar parts are inventive and melodic and really drive the songs which are the real star of the record. Why can't we have bands like this in America instead of Good Charlotte? Is there some sort of exchange program where we could swap? Great band, great record. I only wish "New Love" was on this one like the import version. It's the first song I heard by them on XM and I loved it right away. I'm hooked!
