It’s been two years since Canadian trio Sports released their self-titled debut EP, a record that showed off their range. “Syntax Error” is a bit psychedelic with some muffled vocals, while the cheerful guitar and synths of “Castlots” are compelling enough. And, of course, “Fleetwood” sounds like the band’s best stab at Fleetwood Mac – a poppy, sunny tune that might wrap its way around your head for a few days. It’s doubtful the song would turn Lindsey Buckingham’s head, but you can’t blame Sports for trying. Two years down the road, it’s these songs that still makes a full-length highly anticipated.
