Pat LePoidevin 

American Fiction (independent)

reviews_feature6.jpg

He has the kind of voice that is a little unsettling; going-for-broke vocals that seem like they should crack but never do, no matter what he's singing about it all feels a little melancholy, a little heartbreaking. In American Fiction LePoidevin, a dual citizen, gets in touch with his US family history by weaving fictional small-town narratives into his heavier romantic tunes. Part road trip-inspired short story collection and part folk-epic masterpiece, after Highway Houses, and the intimate concert at the Coho during In the Dead of Winter, I'd listen to just about anything LePoidevin put his name to, but an album this ambitious is especially satisfying.

Survey Asks

Should council use the yet-to-be-finalized Centre Plan when debating new developments?

  • No, it doesn’t exist yet and is still likely to change
  • Yes, thousands of hours of work and consultation have gone into what’s already assembled
  • Maybe, it really depends on what’s being proposed by the developer
  • I don’t know what the Centre Plan is and do not wish to participate in this poll
