You Hold Me, Like A Child

Junior Boys - Like A ChildAOL Music's Spinner has the video premier of the new Junior Boys music video for "Like A Child". Check it out. Junior Boys are at The Mod Club on April 6.

And to further pilfer AOL Music for links, Ted Leo performed a session for AOL Music's The Interface, the full download which will be available March 9. In the meantime, you can listen to Ted performing a cover of Curtis Mayfield's "Keep on Pushing". Ted Leo and The Pharmacists are at The Mod Club on May 2.

Pitchfork reports that the new Feist album "The Reminder" will be released on April 23 worldwide, and on May 1 in Canada and the US.

I'm selfishly disappointed with the 2007 Juno Award nominees for "Alternative Album Of The Year", not that any of them are bad albums, and I'm sure some of them are quite good at least from I've read. However, save for a song here or there, I haven't actually listened to any of these albums. I'm behind the curve for sure. One thing that confuses me is the disparity between the nominees for the Polaris Music Prize and the Juno Awards "Alternative Album Of The Year", the only overlap between the two being the Malajube album:

  • "Skelliconnection" - Chad VanGaalen [Outside]

  • "Sometimes" - City and Colour [Universal]

  • "Return To The Sea" - Islands [EMI]

  • "Trompe-l'Oeil" - Malajube [Outside]

  • "Not Saying/Just Saying" - Shout Out Out Out Out [Warner]
