In the Vancouver Sun, Stuart Derdeyn reviews Swan Song, our music-themed anthology:
“The material is delightfully varied and explores music across all kinds of genres and touches on everything from science to cultural theory, sci-fi and fantasy and even some spores with killer harmonies…. Enjoy honest expressions of why Tegan and Sara are so important to so many (‘Tegan and Sara and Me’ by James Brandi) to Emily Cowan’s wonderful ‘The Sound of Silence,’ all about not really being into music much at all. That her work selects The Young Canadians’ ‘I Hate Music’ as a muse is all the better…. As an introduction to the collective’s output, Swan Song takes flight. It’s also a perfect seasonal gift for anyone with a penchant for graphic novels and/or music.”
