Montreal's High Dials are no slouches as songwriters. But just as big a factor in their appeal is watching them weave together threads of other pop inspirations over the decades. There are traces of everything from XTC to Tom Petty to Super Furry Animals on latest LP "Anthems for Doomed Youth." And if the album title didn't tip you off, the chiming guitars and sighing harmonies confirm that these dudes must be way into Teenage Fanclub.
