Here’s my fav track from the latest disc by Sloan, Canada’s best kept secret. Action Pact dropped last August but was only released here in the States a few weeks ago. It’s straightforward power pop a la Big Star … not terribly original but great nonetheless. They should be much more popular than they are. First time I heard “Everything You’ve Done Wrong” (buy the CD) in college, I called up the radio station ’cause I had to know who it was. The DJ told me people had been calling non-stop to request it. I’ve been a fan ever since.

Sloan – “Nothing Lasts Forever Anymore”
