The Most Serene Republic
Underwater Cinematogra-pher
(Arts & Crafts)
Arts & Crafts is quickly becoming a label whereby you can almost guarantee that its latest release will be interesting, if not addictive. Jason Collett’s solo disc is a masterful, more acoustic version of his parent band Broken Social Scene. And now The Most Serene Republic, with its pleasant blend of all things sweet —indie-pop and electronic jam-oriented musings — follows suit. The band works best on tracks that teeter closely to Stars or BSS (about half of the time). The rest of the time, TMSR sounds like it is searching for a distinct identity, which may be difficult given the incestuous nature and insane popularity of its labelmates. But Underwater Cinematographer suggests that bigger things from this band are inevitable.

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
