Incest is at the forefront of Sarah Slean's thoughts when she contemplates the Canadian music scene. Tired musical ideas are constantly over-exploited and redundancy within genres is a constant disappointment here, she says.

No party represents them fully, or they feel the party they favour hasn't got a turtle's chance on a six-lane highway of surviving. They carry their disenfranchisement like a dull badge of honour, pleading with people to listen while they continuously whine without doing anything about the situation.
