The Weakerthans

Fallow

Sub City

This has been out for a while now, but here it is again. Good music with good lyrics for a good cause. Oh yeah, played by good people (I think). They think generously of others, if that means something in this time of giving. 5% of profits go to a community health center in Canada. Why do you care about some health center? Oh come on, just open up, you greedy bastard. Did I mention that the old bassist from Propagandhi is the main guy here? Some damn witty lyrics and some damn catchy songs. What does it sound like, you may ask? Some songs are fast and poppy and some are slow and poppy. There really isn’t too much snap or crackle. Buy it now.

Sirens

Screen Reviews

The fact that the band Slaves to Sirens exists is impressive, but that they live, love, and breathe to play metal takes things to another level. Sirens documents the journey. Review by Charles DJ Deppner.
