Over a quarter-century and 12 studio albums (with no particularly long gaps between them), Toronto four-piece Sloan may be the most consistent, reliable band from the ’90s alt-rock boom. On their simply titled new album, April’s 12, they resurrect some of the shoegaze crunch of their 1992 debut,Smeared. But more often, the group (whose constant four members all contribute songwriting) let their long-mastered flair for power-pop melodies burst and shine.
