Published Jan 30, 2013As always, we at Exclaim! like to give our readers a voice. Check out the articles that caught our readers' attention and which comments caught ours in this week's Reader Feedback Roundup.
First up, we have Tegan and Sara's album stream. The sisters took a new, synth-based direction on this album, but based on our reader feedback, it was a divisive move. Cameron was dismissive, asking "what is this crap" while number one fan Dylan Anderson disagreed, saying, "This is AWESOME! Another killer record from Tegan and Sara! Fan forever. It's nice with artists don't pigeon hole themselves and just create! Thanks you two!" The like-minded and slightly more baffling King of Cream Cone added "I doubt they would like me and they might see me as a stereotype much like they are but hell they just so good at this music it's painful. Canadaduh take notice. It's all in the SONG. Bravo." Creamy wishes added his two cents. telling us "my mom would like this," but we're not really sure if that's a good or bad thing.
Readers got a little caught up on our use of the word "supergroup" when describing Hawksley Workman's new band with Steve Bays, and Ryan Dahle. James was lost for words, questioning the choice with a simple "supergroup?" The annoyed Lord Sun Sun the Stoner S had a little more to say, adding, "ugghh nothing super about it. And the whole canadiana thing's real old. The should make things worse and cover Gordon Lightfoot." Eh! Rounded out the comments with a sarcastic final word "I second the Gordon Lightfoot cover...they should strongly consider Matthew Good, re-name the band to 'shit show.'"
Last but not least on this weeks reader feedback roundup, we have Dean Ween's new fishing show with Les Claypool. Eric Sacguin was feeling a little skeptical about the news, wondering "Anybody else think this is going to be kinda like the red green show?" But Matthew Scott doesn't think so: "Not in the least. Though it may end up a little like Fishing with John on the various medicinals that these two have been known to partake in."
