The Most Serene Republic

If I've read this post from correctly, The Most Serene Republic from Milton, ON will be the newest addition to the Arts & Crafts roster! According to news at the band's site as well as Sunday League Records, the band has some upcoming tour dates including an opening slot for British Sea Power on May 17th at Lee's Palace in Toronto. Check out a streaming audio sample over at Sunday League Records' page. Comparisons have been drawn to Death Cab For Cutie and Broken Social Scene. The band used to have their own page but it seems to be down now. I guess I'll have to wait for the British Sea Power show to check 'em out further.[Ok, so NOW I believe Feist will NOT be playing that night.] For more info on The Most Serene Republic check out Sunday League Records.

Here's a link to a torrent of a couple of Sloan live performances: 2005-04-21, Barrie & 2001-07-06, Toronto. Just the thing to get you psyched up for the band's new compilation "A Sides Win" which is coming out on May 10th. [thanks to largehearted boy for pointing out torrent link]

Mystery and Misery has got a great Indie-pop Summertime Mix he's compiled featuring indie-pop songs he's found online.

Montreal's Wolf Parade will be at The Comfort Zone in Toronto on June 11th. [from Sub Pop]

Caught news over at about a great new CD compilation called "... A Compilation for Reach for the Rainbow" released by Basement Recording Co. to raise money for Reach for the Rainbow. It'll sell for $14.99 or less and it'll feature a variety of good Canadian artists(mostly indie), including Cuff The Duke, Joel Plaskett Emergency, Royal City, A Northern Chorus, Great Lake Swimmers, The Inbreds and others. Release date June 14th.
