Dreaming of Canada with Carly Rae Jepsen
The most beautiful sound in the world to me is that of an orchestra tuning itself to the oboe’s taut A. The second most beautiful is Carly Rae Jepsen. For these two reasons, I flew to Canada for exactly twenty-eight hours over the weekend, to see Jepsen perform with the sixty-person Toronto Symphony Orchestra, in a sold-out performance for twenty-six hundred of the purest souls in pop fandom and, possibly, the world. “I’m so happy that it’s almost like I’m uncomfortable!” Jepsen gasped... more

Five Questions With… The Philosopher Kings
It’s almost impossible to recall how barren the Canadian R&B landscape was in 1994 when The Philosopher Kings released their self-titled debut album.
