Dorothea Paas could probably write a real banger if she wanted to. That much becomes clear on "Closer to Mine," one of many standout tracks on the Toronto singer-songwriter's entrancing debut album, Anything Can't Happen. After the song's peculiar intro of dissonant chords and start-stop rhythms, the arrangement suddenly coalesces into a surging groove and, momentarily, it seems like it's going to turn into a kraut-punk scorcher.
