Published Mar 03, 2010A new month has begun and with it comes a brand new issue of Exclaim!, full of bands you already love and some just waiting to be your next musical crush. Along with our magazine currently making its way across Canada, you can find the contents of the entire March issue here.
Gracing our cover this month are Jason Collett and his indie rock disciples Zeus, whose new album, Say Us, just came out last week. Check out the cover story as the bands prepare for their joint Bonfire Ball Revue tour, and listen to Collett's upcoming Rat A Tat Tat here while you read along.
Also inside the issue, you'll find our Questionnaire answered by Broken Bells, the new project from Danger Mouse and the Shins front-man James Mercer. The duo talk about how the collaboration got started, Mercer's long-ago summer job at an amusement park and the time Danger Mouse DJ'd a 13-year-old's birthday party.
We've got web exclusive Conversations with Buzzov*en, Harvey Milk and Doug McCombs of Tortoise, as well as with T-Bone Burnett and Taken By Trees.
And in our Points section, we have feature articles on the Besnard Lakes, Bassekou Kouyate, Alkaline Trio and A Silver Mt. Zion. Plus, Exclaim! hangs out in the cave of Ted Leo's brain, and things get weird with Daughters.
Also, this month's Timeline takes us through the life and work of Gil Scott-Heron and suggests some essential listening, while over in the Where I Play section, Skratch Bastid (aka Paul Murphy) gives us a tour of his Toronto loft studio.
All of this and so much more can be found at Exclaim.ca, so head to the March contents page for more interviews, articles and reviews of all the latest music and motion releases.
