366TAS: 5:58 – Sam Roberts – The Gate

Not much to say today, other than to note that for the first time, we have back-to-back Canadians, bringing us to 14 artists for the year who hail from the Great White North. Ironically both Bran Van 3000 and Sam Roberts are Montreal-based acts and these posts come on the heels of yesterday’s provincial elections which saw the separatist Parti Québécois take over the Governorship of Quebec for the first time since 2003. In 1998, the Canadian Supreme Court did rule that Quebec could now lawfully unilaterally secede from Canada, so don’t go waving your Fleurdelisé just yet; all five Quebec-based artists we’ve heard from look like they’ll remain Canadians for the near future.
