Albums Of The Week: Night Court | Humans!

The Vancouver punk-pop power trio keep it tight & bright on their engaging third LP.


THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE: “Vancouver power trio Night Court were born during the great lockdown of 2020 from lifelong friends Jiffy and Dave-O and quickly grew into 30 songs, 26 of which became their debut duology Nervous Birds! One and Too, and later compiled in a one-cassette Greatest Hits compilation. Once Emilor completed the three-piece on drums in 2021, the band spent the next year playing locally, touring Canada and the U.S., and recording their third album Humans!

With a lo-if DIY approach to their recordings, Humans! captures Night Court’s love affair with loud, messy, beautiful songs that are not likely to overstay their welcome. The album’s 16 songs — coming in under 27 minutes — were recorded at Magic Hour, the converted “studio” that Jiffy and Dave-O built in Jiffy’s garage. With a wide pool of influences and rave reviews, Night Court’s energetic live performances have earned them gigs supporting everyone from hometown punk progenitors Pointed Sticks to Welsh post-hardcore noise enthusiasts Mclusky. Night Court demand attention, but long attention spans are not required.”
