A roundup of published works

Camera Obscura - The Blizzard/Swans
Please excuse this self-indulgent entry, but I thought I’d give a quick roundup of some recently published works.

I haven’t posted many show reviews in the past month because most of the concerts I’ve covered lately have been published elsewhere. For Exclaim!, I reviewed Metric, Dinosaur Jr., Billy Bragg and Julian Casablancas. For the November issue of BeatRoute, I covered Starfucker and Chad VanGaalen.

Also for BeatRoute, I interviewed Arkells, Hannah Georgas and Prairie Cat. They also republished my You Say Party! We Say Die! cover story.

Speaking of Prairie Cat, I reviewed his new album for the Georgia Straight. I also wrote about the new Language-Arts album.

Lastly, I wrote a show-preview-profile-type-thing on Billy Bragg for The Tyee.

It’s less than a month until Christmas, which means it’s time to start listening to holiday tunes. Camera Obscura has released a new single to usher in the season, a cover of Jim Reeves‘s “The Blizzard,” first released in 1964. It’s the usual melancholy, countrified beauty from the Scottish pop icons. It’s backed with “Swans,” from this year’s My Maudlin Career.
