A decidedly unpopular royal couple is paying us a visit this month, but oddly, we seem to be paying the bill.

Twenty years ago, the University of Calgary tennis team fared well against the best talent in the nation. Established in 1989, the team was a tennis club to be feared, with both the men and the women racking up western championship titles.

  Spun: Krystle Love BPDF files may take a moment to load

Independently produced and released, Secrets About Us is the debut album for the Calgarian electronic artist Krystle Love B. Her signature blend of guitar and synthesizers is versatile and interesting, lending itself equally well to both the acoustic feeling of songs such as "Memories on Paper," and the more hypnotic and slick tracks like "I've Been Dreaming" and "There She Goes."
