SC100 Now Available For Preorder

This is Secretly Canadian’s 100th release, finally stamped and shipped out on its 11-year anniversary. All artists who issued recordings from SC01 (June Panic, Glory Hole) to SC99 (Swearing at Motorists, Last Night Becomes This Morning) were up for inclusion to cover a song by a label mate via the ol’ names-in-a-hat method. No one wants to get hokey here, but this is a communal gathering, a family jamboree where each takes a turn, fugs it up a smidge, and pays homage to tourmates of past, or in some takes, to personal strangers. The harrowing revival of Songs: Ohia by Suzanne Langille should give Jason Molina a bite to ghostwrite her next album. Jens Lekman’s love of death chants and Scout Niblett makes that impending end dance with rainbows. No need to rumble through each track with my own gander, but it’s a gulp of life and worth every penny on this set to hear the swagger yell as Nikki Sudden tears into June’s “See(ing) Double,” just like an apparition of him strolling down Fourth Street, dressed like a million, and swiggin’ a sack at 2pm. You wouldn’t have seen that from the booth window, though Sudden did make his way down to that corner late one night.
