Last weekend, the Arcade Fire defied all odds and created one of the biggest “WTF” moments in music history when they stole the thunder from a nomination list of what was primarily American poptarts at the Grammys - beating out that Bieber kid, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, etc - and being the first indie artist to receive a Grammy for Album of the Year – making a huge statement to indie artists and major labels alike.
And let’s not forget the fact that they’re Canadian.
Keeping up with the trend – not only am I’m totally stoked that this next group is also Canadian and reviving old school rock’n'roll in true fashion – but they’re from right here in my hometown.
Recently announced on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, a contest to Choose the Cover of the Rolling Stone Magazine – and The Sheepdogs are the only Canadian group out of 16 the list. The winner of the coveted cover on Rolling Stone Magazine also snags a slot at Bonnaroo, a performance on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, and a deal with Atlantic Records.
While your at it, check out their video for "I Don't Know" below. Congrats dudes! You’ve got an entire nation behind you.
