  More Pop, less Sub from The ShinsPDF files may take a moment to load

There was a time when bell-bottoms, The Smiths and The Replacements ruled the world. Just as bell-bottoms have come back as "flared" pants, the sound of retro has been reborn through The Shins.

June 19 saw the release of The Shins major-label debut titled Oh Inverted World. The disc is 11 tracks of old school pop that forces your head to bounce. You can definitely hear influences such as The Cure or Suede coming through on tracks like the absolutely delicious "Girl Inform Me."

  Shocking the industryPDF files may take a moment to load

Michelle Shocked is not an easy individual to control. She is unrestrained in her music, her career and even in talking to me. Rarely do artists attempt to take control of a conversation so blatantly as Shocked does.

I call the Texas-born singer/songwriter at her home in L.A., where she lives between tour dates. Otherwise, she's based out of New Orleans, where she inhabits a party pad in the French Quarter.

"Is that like shameless Rock Star behaviour?" she asks with a laugh.

Tour and they will come.

That's the strategy so far for Calgary's Belvedere, who've spent the last five years establishing a fan base across North America. The four-piece melodic hardcore-punk act know that as an indie label band, the only real way to get people to turn on to their music is to make it happen live.

Ed. Note: The North Star today is not the North Star of 2000 years ago. As a result, the dates of the zodiac have changed, and while most astrologists refuse to acknowledge this, AP has decided to break with tradition and adopt the modern dates for the zodiac. In addition, our astronomy expert has informed us that there is a 13th sign, Ophiuchus. Make sure to check the dates, so you read the right sign.
