Vancouver's DDT mixes ska, punk, rap and rock into a high-octane blend on their major-label debut Urban Observer. Alternating between coolly funky and loudly rowdy on songs like "Walkabout," "Liquid" and "Lie Detector," this quintet manages to have their cake and eat it too, musically speaking. Part of this versatility comes from DDT's dual-frontman lineup, which includes rapper Cory Perry White and singer Brian Howes. Urban Observer is an adrenaline-laced debut from a unique group.
