We're the nation that's free and fun
One of my long-time favourite bands, Sloan, has released a new CD. I know I've plugged Sloan a zillion times on this site already, but in my defense, they have a lot to plug -- "Parallel Play" is their ninth album!
Admittedly, it feels a bit strange going back to a standard-length disc after being totally spoiled by their 30-track, 70+ minute rock opus, "Never Hear the End of It". But the new album still has plenty to enjoy, and like all of Sloan's work, is an instant recommendation to anyone who enjoys solid, classic rock and roll. Anyone curious can preview four tracks over on the band's MySpace page.
Obligatory Conscience Cat limited print update: all the prints that have been ordered so far have now been mailed out. Meanwhile, for any procrastinators out there still looking to order, it looks like I'm getting down to my last few copies. I can't say for certain exactly when I will run out, but once they're gone, they're gone. So act now... or don't! Live dangerously. (You rockstar, you.)
