New release tuesday.

Today’s new release: Amy Millan ‘Honey From The Tombs’

  Being somewhat obsessed with Stars, I’ve been looking forward to this album for a while. Though apprehensively due to the horrible title (oh my stars and garters…). At first listen the album is pretty good. Folkier (almost alt-country) than Stars, but that’s okay because a solo album should sound different. And it’s still her voice in all its breathy stereo-doubled glory… but there’s something here that

is not present on the Stars’ records. something which makes Stars the best
Canadian band since Sloan. The ingredient? Canadiana. This album is too 
damn Canadian sounding. CBC radio is going to eat this up like it’s a back
bacon sandwich with a maple leaf side salad. Worse, it’s americanadiana.
When Canadians play American roots music, it sounds like white guys playing
the blues. Over all, the effect is like Jewel doing Carolyn Mark covers. Or worse,
a female Joel Plasket.
