A revolutionary plan that would effectively legitimize file-sharing here has been slammed as “a pipe dream” by Canadian labels. The Songwriters Assn. of Canada proposes to allow domestic consumers access to all recorded music available online in return for adding a $5 Canadian ($4.96) monthly fee to every wireless and Internet account in the country. The SAC claims that the proposal, which has been presented to labels’ bodies the Canadian Record Industry Assn. (CRIA) and Canadian Independent Record Production Assn. as well as publishers’ groups, would raise approximately $1 billion Canadian ($993 million) annually. Although the SAC does not detail… Read more »

Jimmy Eat World completely bleed American, which might be why their Canadian visit to the Kool Haus (their second Toronto stop in the last couple of months) remained fairly conservative. Beginning as emo-pop cult favourites and now mid-deep in their crossover to sweaty arena-style power-pop, the Arizona quartet continues to churn out dorm-ready tales of teenage melodrama. Instead of pseudo-edgy, bleach-blonde glamourizing of teenhood tribulations, however, Jimmy Eat World present a more ragged – if no less romanticized – portrait of the American Eagle set: less cocaine, more beer stains; less OC, more One Tree Hill. Yet despite being mostly… Read more »

The Talent will play roughly 25 dates covering almost every part of the vast Canadian landscape.

Psychobilly freaks don’t get your creepers in a knot, but Tiger Army singer/guitarist Nick 13 expects the band to do their first cross-Canada headlining tour some time in the very near future. “I don’t know if it’s just speculation… maybe my own heartfelt desires but I think we’re on track for a proper Canadian tour,” he says with excitement. “I don’t want to get anyone’s hopes up, ‘cause if it doesn’t happen soon, it won’t happen for a really long time… but I can’t help it.” Able to count the times this psychobilly power trio responsible for such luminary efforts… Read more »
