Less BRIT More RAWK

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”
