Warriors: The Cookers

The jazz supergroup Warriors gives you a taste of what a jam session with Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Art Blakey and the other greats of 1960s post-bop might sound like today.

Music

Tired Pony: The Place We Ran From

A stellar group of backing musicians, including members of R.E.M., Belle and Sebastian, Editors, and She & Him, isn't enough to overcome bland songwriting on this disappointing effort led by Snow Patrol frontman Gary Lightbody.

Music

Land of Talk: Cloak and Cipher

Like fellow Montreal denizens Broken Social Scene, Land of Talk offer a mix of ambient post-punk, pop, folk, and electronica on their debut LP. Unlike its Canadian peers, however, this trio is led by a superbly talented lead singer.

Music

Stars: The Five Ghosts

The Toronto band triumphs again, utilizing infectious boy/girl harmonies, fuzzy electronics, and lovelorn lyrics to produce an enjoyable set of ambient indie pop without being nauseatingly cute.

Music

Gorillaz: Plastic Beach

Sellouts, subversive revolutionaries, or just four rockin' cartoon characters? Gorillaz still make the same great music, but do they still spur the same great debate?
