Outrageously excited for this! Scott is perhaps my favourite songwriter on earth, and although I don't listen to enough of The National, I have the utmost respect for Aaron Dessner - so I'm really...

Be grateful you're in the US then. I passed on two Dustin Kensrue LPs the other day because the shipping was going to be $25...before the brutal 1.38 exchange rate. I don't even mean to pick on...

Credit to SweetThye 2 posts up for mentioning Tellison, they were the British band I was going to push in my post, because they're painfully underrated, and have no presence on this side of the...

I had no idea this terrible band was from Toronto. I'm glad I run in different circles here.

Say Anything has been fresh in mind for me lately - I recently picked up the IARB vinyl, and dove back into the older albums I enjoyed so much.

I wasn't offended by Hebrews or Anarchy, but I didn't...

I'm kinda surprised At the Drive-In didn't make your list too - but it's hard to make an all-encompassing list for this year, there's so much good news from old names!

I really loved their last album, and it's cool that they're signed to Dine Alone here in Canada.

Oh, and I like the song!

This. I was initially confused until I remembered having seen them perform it live.

Love all of the Toronto and Canadian references they include in their music; after so many of my favourite bands...

USPS international shipping price increase a few years ago has hurt how many records I order direct from US stores, and now the Canadian exchange rate plunge is absolute murder. Not that it's...

Wild how many projects members from Gatsby's have been in, it's almost hard to keep track of them all. Although it didn't involve Nic, I'm especially curious what became of The Wild Orchid Children,...

I think I was expecting it to be more stripped down than that. Shane has such a distinctive voice, I think it's hard to include all of the same instruments as Silverstein and sound very different.

Agree with fearthesloths, What it is to Burn is the song that immediately came to mind while listening to the podcast.

Embarrassingly topical to my existence on AP, my first download of Moneen's Are...

To be fair, they haven't made anything in a looong time...

But it does sound great! I have to assume at least do a local show or few, and when they do, I'll be there!

I was going to say that I hope improved acoustics was a centre-piece of the reno, but after reading articles about it, including quotes from the designer, I'm skeptical that's a priority. These in...

Exactly, The Force Awakens, or basically all JJ Abrams movies are great examples of making trailers that grab attention while holding cards close to the chest. Different styles I guess, but I know...

I hesitated on buying tickets so far in advance when they were released, and they sold out almost immediately for Toronto. This is just salt in the wounds given my love for Caspian too. Dust and...

It may just be a bad luck string of tours I've looked into that didn't have Canadian stops, and a not actually a pattern overall.
But I am a little worried with the dollar going below 70 cents that...
