Have you ever stood in this exact spot? Under the searing fluorescent lights of countless phone-ringings and throat-clearings? Between the carpeted cubicles and dreadful work-posters of an office catacomb? Well, you vitamin-D deficient typists and malnourished microwave-meal clerks, this year’s Summer Albums feature is dedicated in your honour. Clutch every breeze of those Friday nights as if you’ll never breathe again, relish in every laugh with friends to break the grimaces you’ve mastered over the work-week, oh!! Thank God for each and every one of you… martyrs, one and all!
Anyway, I remembered recently that the initial idea behind these Quarterly features was to feature albums from the past which illustrated the moods of a certain season. How can I help it though, if new records that encapsulate all this beautiful weather keep finding me? With long-awaited new releases by Broken Social Scene, LCD Soundsystem and Prins Thomas, SCQ is offering no shortage of reasons to spring you from your work-place doldrums…
To all the survivors,
