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.
Living in Canada is pretty sweet.
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:
- Members of Broken Social Scene and Apostle of Hustle
- Members of Constantines
- The Besnard Lakes (woo hoo!)
- Matt Mays
- Sebastien Grainger of Death From Above 1979
- Members of Godspeed You Black Emperor and Thee Silver Mt. Zion Orchestra
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.
More info on NPP (including loads more musicians who participated) can be found here. Can’t wait until March 19!
