I am channel surfing past MuchMoreMusic’s news show, and there’s a piece on indie Canadian bands signing worldwide deals with a variety of high-profile labels. There’s The Hidden Cameras talking about signing with Rough Trade, Moneen with Vagrant, The Weakerthans with Epitaph… all accompanied by clips of their respective music videos. Which is all well and good, except the Hot Hot Heat clip was accompanied by the video for Spoon’s “Small Stakes”. Whoops. It’s okay guys, those old keyboards all sound the same anyway. You can see the video here, if you feel so inclined.
If Amazon.ca is to be believed, FOW’s latest Welcome Interstate Managers will be getting a domestic (Canadian) release on July 8. I can wait another couple weeks if it means avoiding paying import prices (if I could even find it).
The new Death Cab album is entitled Transatlanticism and is scheduled for release on October 7.
