Published Oct 30, 2013As October comes to an end in Canada, the days grow shorter and colder, while hairs on mens' upper lips grow longer and thicker in anticipation of Movember. And with the arrival of late autumn's most popular portmanteau comes a new issue of Exclaim!, ripe with articles, interviews and reviews for hungry eyes and minds. You can up a copy today at your favourite establishments and nearest street boxes all across Canada.
Our November cover has gone to prolific Canadian DJ and producer Ryan Hemsworth. Fresh off the release of his full-length solo debut, Guilt Trips, Hemsworth sits down with Exclaim! to discuss insecurity, video game music and bringing Sigur Rós to the dance floor.
In the latest edition of our timeline feature, we trace the wild life and career of rap icon Eminem. We follow Marshall Bruce Mathers III from humble beginnings in his crime-ridden Detroit neighbourhood to his current status as one of hip-hop's most successful and influential artists.
Among our in-depth features are Canadian country songstress Lindi Ortega, with whom we chatted about the magic of Nashville and Toronto's alt-folk scene, eccentric Detroit MC Danny Brown, who blends underground hip-hop and trap on his long-awaited Old, and art rockers Yamantaka//Sonic Titan, who explain the philosophy behind their elaborate imagery and myth-making on latest album Uzu.
In our music school section, we spoke with Toronto indie rock vet Brendan Canning about his vinyl collection and his recent "Depeche Mode western" score for The Canyons. In our reviews section, we also spoke to Shad, Corrections House, DJ Rashad, the Deep Dark Woods and Anna Calvi.
Our online, web-exclusive interviews with Pup, Deltron 3030 and Monster Magnet are up now. More content will become available online throughout the month, but for full immediate access to all our music coverage, pick up a copy of Exclaim! at a restaurant, cafe, bar, record store or venue near you.
