Published Nov 04, 2009Fall is quickly passing us by and it's already time to start gearing up for winter. Of course, with November finally upon us, readers can rejoice with the latest issue of Exclaim! Magazine, which is making its across Canada and is now online here.
Exclaim!'s cover stars this month are our favourite Calgary-born twins Tegan and Sara, who have just released their latest album, Sainthood. The story showcases the individual personalities of the two as they come together for another honest, fan-pleasing album, even though they continue to struggle with people's generalizations about them and superficial questions.
Exclaim!'s Points section also features tons of artists this month, including Baroness, the XX, Fuck Buttons, as well as Little Girls, the Creepshow and Todor Kobakov.
Hot on the heels of arguably his best King Khan & BBQ Show full-length, Invisible Girl, Montreal's King Khan took time to complete our monthly Questionnaire, while metal gods Slayer and their lengthy career are featured in this month's Timeline.
Exclaim!'s Music School section doesn't break for midterms, as we discuss Transmission 2009 in our Need to Know feature. Plus, we talk with percussionist and music culture enthusiast Gurpreet "the Tabla Guy" Chana for What I Play.
If you're looking for more Q&As, check out our web exclusive Conversations section, featuring comedian Eugene Mirman, former MuchMusic VJ Michael Williams and Ian McCulloch of Echo & the Bunnymen, as well as Sufjan Stevens, Swollen Members and the Avett Brothers.
And of course, the November issue of Exclaim! Magazine is chock-full of the latest music, film and videogame reviews, plus plenty more for our faithful readers!
