On the cover this month, we have Liz Powell - the voice of Montreal three-piece Land of Talk, whose sophomore album, Cloak and Cipher, recently hits shelves via Saddle Creek. In our story, she talks about her evolution as a musician, industry stigma and how she is finally in a good place where she can accept and embrace that Land of Talk is her.

In our Questionnaire, comedian extraordinaire Margaret Cho talks about her first all-music album, Cho Dependent, and how her collaborations with numerous Canadian musicians (including Tegan and Sara and Broken Social Scene's Kevin Drew) should earn her a Juno. Also, Timeline is back this month with eclectic UK artist Justin Broadrick's spectrum-spanning career, which includes Godflesh, Jesu, Napalm Death and, most recently, Pale Sketcher.

The Points section this month contains a variety of different feature articles, with the latest updates from Rae Spoon, the Drums, Comeback Kid, Ion Dissonance, Minotaurs and Rich Kidd.

And learn all about the ins and outs of federal and provincial funding - high up on the "need to know how" checklist for independent artists - in our Music School section, and learn all about Eric Chenaux's favourite instruments in What I Play. Also, check out and write in to our new advice column Ask Allison for music industry tips and tricks.

For September's Conversations, they start off with Black Sabbath bassist Geezer Butler talking about the band's uncertain future with the loss of longtime friend/bandmate, Ronnie James Dio, and their genre-defining effort, Paramount. Next, mould-breaking electronic artist Matthew Dear chats with us about his recently released Black City and the differences between DJ-ing and playing in a band. We also speak with Wovenhand's David Eugene Edwards.

There's tons more content on, including film and music reviews, interviews and articles. For the full list of what's out there now, check out the September Contents page.
