Montreal pop icons Stars were finishing their ethereal and optimistic set just as I was arriving. What is unfortunate is that I completely missed ' Library Voices who surely wowed and amazed.

On with the show...

Boxer The Horse

So last week on DEP I played a new track off of Boxer the Horse's new album. I was immediately enthralled and a little stunned by these young dudes who kicked the jams and raised the ruckesses. You may feel a little Modern Lovers meets Inbreds meets, meets, meets.....PURE JOY!

They have been getting a tonne of press from NOW to Exlaim! to DEP

Seriously though, go to their myspace page and check them out: BOXER THE HORSE

Here they are doing a cover of Roadrunner by The Modern Lovers!!!!!
