Music

The Raveonettes

True innovators are never in style.

The Suzan

2010’s Golden Week for the Poco Poco Beat (Fool’s Gold) is the debut LP from Japan’s all-girl group The Suzan.

No Gold

There’s no gold in Fort Knox. I read it. I read it in some book about conspiracy theories… I think Mel Gibson wrote it.

Tennis

The story behind the relatively new retro-pop outfit, Tennis, may be charming, but don’t call them a buzz-band.

Grinderman

Warren Ellis, as it turns out, is two very different creatures: one is a ferocious warlock who throws high-kicks while performing voodoo on his violin; the other is a soft-spoken gentleman who is as thoughtful as he is thought-provoking (can you guess which of the two I interviewed?).

Salem

You’re finally releasing a full-length album after a handful of limited run EPs and 7” records. Is releasing an album a momentous thing or is it just another step?

Insane Clown Posse

SEND IN THE CLOWNS

Das Racist

The New Yorker calls them art rap, The New York Times calls them joke rap and the internet is calling them a clever and self-aware take on hip hop.

Women

Back in 2008, Calgary’s Women became a surprise success with the release of their gritty, art-rocking eponymous debut.

Chromeo

ION was lucky enough to have Love & Electrik, a young and popular act of a similar genre, interview Dave1 and P-Thugg. Never again shall these two bands be in the same room, as any catastrophe would drain the Canadian funk pool down to zero.
