Published Nov 05, 2010Our newest edition of Exclaim! is making its way to your favourite blue magazine boxes across the country. But if you would rather enjoy the online version, all of the November issue content can be found here at Exclaim.ca.
On the cover this month, we have Diamond Rings, Toronto, ON's genre-bending glam indie hero whose debut full-length, Special Affections, recently hit the shelves. Diamond Rings (aka John O'Regan) sat down with Exclaim! to talk about the evolution of his look, his other band, D'Urbervilles, and how a hospital stay brought about musical inspiration.
Singer/rapper Aloe Blacc's new album, Good Things, is heavy on the soul, and in our Questionnaire section, Blacc talks about what he's working on next and what we can expect in the future. In this month's Timeline feature, we look at the long and varied career of Michael Gira, tracking his musical journey from Swans to Angels of Light and to the founding of Young God Records.
November's Interviews are, as always, all over the musical map. Our feature articles this month include stories on Sufjan Stevens, Badly Drawn Boy, J. Period and Wiz Khalifa, as well as N*E*R*D and Jim Bryson, among others.
And in this month's edition of Music School's Where I Play, learn all about Daniel Lanois. School is in session so take a seat and learn everything you can from one of the greatest record producers in Canadian history. His credits include U2's 1984 album, The Unforgettable Fire, Neil Young's latest, Le Noise, and the soundtrack to the Oscar-winning Sling Blade. Also in Music School this month, Allison tells you to Evict Your Inner Bonehead in Need to Know and discusses what to do to get signed and exactly what not to do.
There's tons more content where all of that came from, including film and music reviews, interviews and articles. Find it all now here on Exclaim.ca.
