This year marks the 46th anniversary of Festival d’été de Québec. Here’s what you need to know about this summer music series.
Six artists have tied for most nominations this year.
This Week: Sunny duo Tennis get a welcome rock edge with production from The Black Keys’ Pat Carney; High hopes for synth-elite Chromatics’ first release in five years; Islands’ album of loss, memory, forgetting and dreaming; Shearwater’s first release on SubPop finds balance; Field Music’s new one requires an active ear.
This week’s new albums include discs from LCD Soundsystem, Exodus, the Black Keys, Janelle Monae, and Nas. Read our quick cuts.
This can only be settled with a Rockoff!
