Feist covers Tragically Hips Flamenco in tribute to Gord Downie listen
May 27, 2016 4:17pm | Cosequence Of Sound
Sad news broke earlier this week when The Tragically Hip frontman Gord Downie had been diagnosed with terminal brain cancer. Despite the news, the band is still set to head out on tour this summer in support of what is to be their last release, Man Machine Poem.
That record, due out June 17th, was produced by Kevin Drew of Broken Social Scene. Now, Drew’s former bandmate and Downie’s dear friend, one Leslie Feist, has paid tribute to the ailing Canadian alt-rock icon. Feist uploaded a moving cover of Tragically Hip’s “Flamenco” off 1996’s Trouble at the Henhouse. “For Gord,” she wrote on the song’s description. “Well all be there this summer to see you bring out the new songs with your singular guts and panache…. and the golden oldies that are so golden. All my respect, admiration and love, Leslie.”
Feist’s version is a raw acoustic take, and features all the background noise of a home recording. You can hear her every breath, even a clearing of the throat before the final bridge. It’s a hauntingly sweet rendition, and you can listen in above.
In a statement to The New York Times, Feist said, “My feelings are big for Gord, as they have been since I first met him 20 years ago,. Hes always been a teacher to me for how to fight for the true view in a song and inhabit them with conviction. I admire hi...

Rosa Salazar to lead Robert Rodriguez and James Camerons Alita: Battle Angel
May 27, 2016 3:34pm | Cosequence Of Sound
James Cameron and Robert Rodriguez have found their leading lady for Alita: Battle Angel. The Maze Runner and Divergent star Rosa Salazar will play the amnesiac cyborg in the manga adaptation.
Cameron, who was originally slated to direct the film, penned the screenplay which follows the titular hero who’s uncovered by a scientist in a dump and brought back to life. She remembers nothing about her past and opts for the bounty hunter life.
Rodriguez hopped on to direct the film last October, leaving Cameron to his 24 Avatar films and a giant “What if?” for cinephiles to debate in the decades to come. Still, Rodriguez needs a solid hit, and having Cameron as a producer only helps.
There’s no release date right now, but Twentieth Century Fox will distribute.
Report: Miles Morales to swing onto big screen in animated Spider-Man film
May 27, 2016 3:28pm | Cosequence Of Sound
When news first broke of the deal between Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios that would bring Spider-Man to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, a vocal contingent of fans were hoping that it could be an oppurtunity for a non-white Spidey to web up the big screen. In fact, there were even reports that a diversified Peter Parker was considered by Kevin Feige. Of course, the role ultimately went to Tom Holland, whose debut in Captain American: Civil War has been well received.
However, it now appears those calling for a silver screen Spider-Man of a different race may actually get their wish. A report from Heroic Hollywood has it that the animated Spider-Man feature in the works at Sony will indeed put the spotlight on the Miles Morales “Ultimate” version of the character.
For the non-geeks out there, the Ultimate line was a series of comics set in an alternate universe from the central Marvel one. It featured “grittier” re-imaginings of classic characters, and a one point saw the death of Peter Parker. After his passing, a chain of complicated, comic-y events leads to a young half-black, half-Puerto Rican boy named Miles Morales being bitten by a genetically engineered spider. Gaining similar powers to Parker, Morales ends up taking on the mantle of Spider-Man.
The character’s 2011 introduction was not without controversy, but many applauded Marvel’s willing...

A Canadian drone mega mix from the founder of Drone Day
May 27, 2016 3:24pm | Chart Attack
Do you hear that? It's the sound of Canada, droning together as one.
Saturday, May 28 is the third annual Drone Day, with celebrations now taking place in every province and territory of Canada (plus Germany, Bulgaria, Latvia, and England, for good measure). Marie LeBlanc Flanagan, Executive Director of Weird Canada, says the idea was conceived over soup while complaining about the lack of specific days for community celebration.
Drone, more than almost any other style of music, promotes collaboration, inclusivity, and spontaneous celebrations (drones). It's therapeutic and can encourage mental health. It represents oneness, a frequency you can tune into across the country. Here's a short list of events, in record stores and churches, rooftops and alleys. Expect some renegade drones in parks and kitchens, maybe even a few of serendipitous drones at airports and construction sites.
We corresponded with Flanagan about what appeals to her about drone, what it means to her, and then she made us a giant playlist of Canadian music that incorporates drone. Jump in somewhere and ride it out.
