In a story in today’s NP on the almost exclusively Canadian trend toward big, big bands (Broken Social Scene, the Hidden Cameras etc.) writer Jake Bogoch asks:
“So why have the bands’ individual contributions been examined but the greater movement ignored? Why has the music press snoozed on one of the most creative musical movements in the last decade? Why hasn’t anyone identified that bands like these have made layered, intellegent music hip again, and that it is coming from Canada?”
I would like to direct him here.
