The Certain Someones- Sad Salvation
As previously reported, Sloan’s Murderecords imprint is celebrating its 21st anniversary with a book release detailing the label’s first 12 7-inches. On top of including digital downloads of cuts from the likes of Thrush Hermit, Eric’s Trip and Local Rabbits, the release comes with a new 7-inch of material from East Coast supergroup the Certain Someones. You can hear the record’s “Sad Salvation” now via Exclaim.ca.
A snippet of the song was revealed last week in a trailer, which quickly showcased the cotton-candy vocal harmonies of the project, featuring Sloan’s Chris Murphy, the Super Friendz’ Matt Murphy and Jale’s Jennifer Pierce.
As a whole, the track plays into British Invasion conventions, with the lead lick sounding somewhat like the Who’s “I Can’t Explain” and Chris Murphy’s rowdy drum fills thudding out à la Keith Moon.
You can stream the infectious pop rock cut down below.
The book will be sold at Sloan’s upcoming June 14 performance at the Toronto’s Great Hall as part NXNE. The night will also feature a set from the Super Friendz, who will also have the first-ever vinyl pressing of their 1995 debut Mock Up, Scale Down for sale.
Everything you could ever want.

The Bird and the Bee- The Bird and the Bee
One of my all-time favorite albums. It’s pure pop (for now people, great) with huge Burt Bacharach overtones— like Bacharach songs played by a Brazilian Madonna or something. Truly a classic.

Macca absolutely killing it in the studio. I wanna say this is a pic from the Ram sessions. You can wave all your guitar gods in my face, but I’m still gonna dig McCartney’s playing better.
