Editors’ Notes

Sloan, one of Canada’s finest groups for the past twenty years, is back with their tenth album, the quick and concise The Double Cross, where the band shows its knack for a pop hook is second to none.

The sweet ballad “Green Gardens, Cold Montreal” is further proof of just how great this band can be.
