"You Can", by the Toronto trio Tearjerker, is less of a "song" than a blissful loop, a freeze-frame on a perfectly symmetrical five-note melody. After some sputters and coughs, the transfixing loop kicks in—it's a soccer chant, something huge and relentlessly simple designed to ripple out over festival masses. Hear it once, and feel it become part of your under-the-breath murmuring for the rest of your day. The band seems to know they've designed a lethally powerful hook, so they reinforce it with keyboards and a guitar, pumping it full of air until it takes to the sky, a great big orange blimp floating overhead. It's all peak, the blissful climax of an Explosions in the Sky song snagged in a processor and repeating.

Track Name: Door
Walked by your house
And I thought
Knock on that back door
Put my hand on
The metal

I want you all to myself
I won't share with someone else
Having coffee on my porch

I'm in the water by myself
I feel the waves between my toes
And then I shiver from the cold
Track Name: Hand
Your lovely hand
Leading the long way home
I held my breath
You held your own

Don't break my little heart
You said
I wouldn't even think of it
Track Name: Another Moon
Give it all away
I don't want you to save it
I didn't quite say
What I wanted to say yet

Your light is like another moon
And I only want to be right next to you
Your smile lights up the entire room
And I only want to be right next to you
Track Name: You Can
Oh you can't bring it back
But you can make it last
So we stand
In the shade
Till the sun
Goes away
Oh we saw
A flashing light
From the star passing by
