SECRETLY CANADIAN releases 100th album and celebrates 11 year anniversary.

Secretly Canadian's 100th album, appropriately titled "SC100", will
be released April 24, 2007.

SC100 is a suspended-in-time, freeze-dried nugget of evolution from
the humble beginnings everyone has. For those with a checklist of
Hoosier Rock History, take note that SC is the first Indiana label to
issue 100 titles. Daydreams are good when thinking of who came before
-- BRBQ, 700 West, Lamp, Solid Gold or Gulcher -- and what they
could've done if not for being corn-holed by that cruel economy of
scales or by packing up and leaving the state for brighter times.

SC100 has been in the works for about three years and features 18
Secretly Canadian artists defiling each other's songs. All artists
who issued recordings from SC01 (June Panic, "Glory Hole") to SC99
(Swearing at Motorists, "Last Night Becomes This Morning") were up
for inclusion to cover two songs by a label mate chosen via the ol'
names-in-a-hat method. SC100 is a two disc set, with the second
disc's worth of material being available only from your favorite
digital download retailer.

But for now, you can check out the late Nikki Sudden doing his
version of the June Panic song, "See(ing) Double" here:

And Dave Fischoff covering Damien Jurado's, "Abilene" here:

And here is a special outtake that does not appear on the physical
release nor on the digital copy of SC100. It's Marmoset doing a
tripped out version of Jens Lekman's "Black Cab":

This year also marks Secretly Canadian's 11th year in existence, and
