Published Feb 15, 2014While it may be a long weekend in many provinces in Canada and down south, that hasn't stopped us from pulling together our ever-trusty news roundup. For a glimpse at what kept our news scribes busy this week, keep on reading.
First off, it was a big week for reunions in the Canadian music world. Not only did the mighty Constantines reunite, promising some upcoming tour dates and a reissue of high-watermark Shine a Light, but the Unicorns are plotting a reunion. However, you may not want to get your hopes too high up on the latter, as Unicorns' Nick Thorburn later cast some doubt on the whole thing.
Also up in Canada, Kathleen Edwards cast some doubts of her own regarding her musical career before Drake caused a massive shitstorm over a Rolling Stone article. First he called out Macklemore over his Grammy apology text to Kendrick Lamar, but things took a turn for the worse when Drake accused Rolling Stone of misquoting him and took issue with the publication for giving up his cover spot to the late Philip Seymour Hoffman. Soon, though, Drake was on damage control, issuing an apology over the whole thing.
In other news, the soundtracks to David Lynch's much-loved Twin Peaks are finally set for some lavish vinyl reissues courtesy of the folks at Death Waltz, while Thee Oh Sees announced a new album and so did Little Dragon.
Last but not least, if you're a musician thinking of stage diving into your audience, you may want to think twice. This week Skrillex was sued by a fan for performing such a stunt and Fishbone lost a $1.4 million lawsuit over a very similar case.
