CD REVIEW: Boxer the Horse – Would You Please

Comprised of lead singer and guitarist Jeremy Gaudet, drummer Andrew Woods, Isaac Neily on keyboard and Richard MacLeod on bass, Boxer the Horse is a home-grown Canadian band with lots of kick. The boys hail from Charlottetown, where the music is crude and the coastal vibe is real.

CD REVIEW: Snoop Dogg – The West Coast Blueprint

In celebration of Priority Records' 25th anniversary, hip-hop legend Snoop Dogg runs through his catalogue of West Coast favourites in The West Coast Blueprint. With a few well-placed interludes, Snoop guides the album along like a radio DJ, providing insight and commentary on California hip-hop's golden age.

POP RHETORIC: Outlive, Outplay, Outlast

Thailand. Guatemala. Panama. Fiji. Micronesia. The list goes on. Any television show filmed in these places is automatically cool in my books. Of course I'm talking about Survivor, the best show on television. I usually get the same reaction when I talk about the show; "You still watch that?" Or eve; "That's still on?" Yes, Survivor is still on and I still watch it.

CD REVIEW: Chemical Brothers- Further

Released earlier this year, the Chemical Brothers' seventh effort, Further, can start to sound like a concert album after a few plays. Unlike many of the Brothers' earlier releases, the album captures the raw intensity and structureless flow of a live set, filled with unexpected drops, blips, and volume shifts.

CD REVIEW: Sweet Thing- Sweet Thing

With their self-titled debut, it's easy to see that Toronto's Sweet Thing have Top 40 ambitions. Whether or not they'll get there remains to be seen. The album certainly contains elements that suggest they will: the punchy guitars of "Gun," the shimmering synths of "Lazy Susan," and the soaring vocals of "A Change of Seasons" are all perfectly pop rock enough to satisfy any fan of the genre, but they still have a long way to go.

Summer Entertainment Report Cards: TV Shows – True Blood

Picking up immediately from the intriguing cliff-hanger of season two, season three begins with Sookie Stackhouse enlisting the help of the (very sexy) vampire Eric in order to look for Bill, who has just been abducted by a mysterious source. As the season unfolds, it turns out that it is Russell Edgington-the vampire king of Mississippi- who, along with a brigade of werewolves, has taken Bill as a prisoner.

Summer Entertainment Report Cards: Concerts – NXNE 2010

This year's North by Northeast music festival featured close to 650 bands on over 40 stages throughout Toronto. Often playing second fiddle to the similarly named, but unrelated, South by Southwest festival, 2010 seemed to be NXNE's coming-of-age. From scoring big-name headliners like Iggy and The Stooges and De La Soul, as well as a good number of up-and-coming buzz bands like Surfer Blood and Avi Buffalo, this year's line-up demanded attention.

Summer Entertainment Report Cards: Movies – Inception

It would not be presumptuous to call Inception the movie event of the year. Certainly no other film this year has generated nearly the same amount of buzz as Christopher Nolan's most recent blockbuster. Dom Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio) is an extractor, a thief who steals thoughts from the minds of his targets through their dreams.
