Sweetest darling Fred Thomas and your favorite Canadians Alvvays both landed spots in the top 5 of PopMatters Best Indie Pop of 2017. Fred Thomas' Changer comes in at #4, dubbed a "sharp-eyed poet laureate of wistful restlessness":

"Changer is jam-packed with observations born from memories that taunt and life situations that befuddle. All this to the sort of where-did-that-come from melodies that Thomas specializes in, and music that switches styles song-to-song yet always seems to come from one man's intuition, his sense for space and tune."
and Alvvays' Antisocialites is #2!!!
"At around a half-hour, the album's brevity is part of its charm. After nine songs that mix regret with infatuation, there's the finalé of the year in "Forget About Life", which starts like an intimate invitation and blows up partway through into a glorious cinematic escape, driven by a home-grown dance groove and a soaring call that's both a surrender and a proclamation as close to hopeful as they get."

Please keep celebrating all our friends' hard work. We love them too.
