Featured Track: Sports “Light”

I think one of the bigger disappointments in my dad’s parenting life is his son’s (me) complete disinterest in sports. Soccer? Nope. Baseball? I could park myself in left field for an inning or two. Hockey? Sure, as an alternative to jail maybe. This is about to change. Toronto’s Sports have just finished polishing tracks with Noah Mintz (see Death From Above 1979, Broken Social Scene) for their upcoming album. Now I can say I like Sports and not be lying.

39 musicians + 13 filmmakers + 13 parks = National Parks Project

Living in Canada is pretty sweet.

Not only do we have the National Film Board – whose films inspired Boards of Canada – but we get funding for great projects like The National Parks Project.

What is it? Some of Canada’s greatest music acts “created and recorded” music in Canada’s most beautiful national parks. The music was captured and incorporated into thirteen films by top filmmakers.

Artists include Soundtrack2 faves such as:

The films will be released next month. To whet our appetite, NPP has released this phenomenal trailer that demonstrates what the project’s all about.
