The Canadian band Metric release their 5th album in June.

The band has grown exponentially since 2003 and the new album Synthetica will add to their renown.

One listen to the new single and you will know what I mean.

“Youth Without Youth” is wildly infectious and is already one of my favorite songs of the year.

Oedipus Podcast #2: Canadian Olympian Music

We had some friends over the other night who wanted to watch the opening ceremony of the winter Olympics. Hopefully you didn’t waste precious moments of your life viewing this sorry excuse for a spectacle. It was like a bad high school production with a large budget. Ok, let me say it straight. It sucked! Sorry to my friends North. And as the commentators fell all over themselves telling us how wonderful it was, I could not help thinking that it certainly was not the Canada that I know and love. Musically it did give proper deference to Joni Mitchell and Leonard Cohen, but the rest were American Idol wannabes. Where was Neil Young or even Rush for that matter, the latter at least having a prominent cameo in the popular film I Love You Man. Here are few other artists that I think of when I think of Canada.
