CD REVIEWS: Scott Lanaway: Mergers and Acquisitions

I'm not one to judge a book by it's cover, but I will decide what to read based on what the back cover says; a song called "Oprah, God Wants You To Have A Private Jet" was more than enough to entice me to listen to Scott Lanaway's Mergers and Acquistions. The album is full of spacey electro-folk, one of those new, hard-to-classify sounds your iTunes gives up on and calls "alternative and punk.

CD REVIEWS: Gorillaz: Plastic Beach

Gorillaz's highly anticipated third album Plastic Beach definitely sounds like a Gorillaz album, but it lacks the flare of their sophomore release, Demon Days. Plastic Beach feels like a concept album, but it's difficult to tell what the concept is (but it's certainly not a pinball wizard).

Gary Kinsman and Patrizia Gentile's The Canadian War on Queers: National Security as Sexual Regulation discusses the under-the-radar - and sometimes officially sanctioned - targeting of gays and lesbians as security threats from the 1950s to the 1990s. Written from - and told through - a series of first-hand accounts combined with documents obtained under the Access to Information Act, Kinsman and Gentile discuss the history of queer Canadians in a way that is passionate and personal.

CD REVIEWS: Aidan Knight: Versicolour

Until now, if the name Aidan Knight sounded familiar, it's likely because of his numerous backing contributions to bands in the Victoria/Vancouver music scene. But take a few listens to his debut Versicolour and it's hard to imagine Knight backing up any musician other than himself.

Caravaggio vs. Michelangelo

Although art historians and casual tourists probably won't stop peering up at the brilliance of Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel, the 16th-century Italian Renaissance man may find himself looking up at another art world rival as the top Italian artist in history, according to one renowned art historian.
