A couple of personal mementos from my collection, including the ticket stub from my first Sloan concert.

Let's get this out of the way at the beginning - I'm a big Sloan fan. Without getting bogged down by details, it is accurate to say that I've been listening to Sloan for over half of my life and will be continuing to do so for the rest of my life (pun intended). Sloan recently released their twelfth album, the appropriately titled 12, which seemed like the perfect opportunity to make a Sloan-themed playlist. It is not intended to be a best-of list or my personal favourites, but a list of ten songs from the Sloan catalogue that you might not be familiar with if you have only heard Sloan on the radio. In true Sloan fashion, I've done my best to distribute the song choices between Chris, Jay, Patrick and Andrew.

Find full albums in the TPL catalogue and listen to Twice Removed on vinyl at the Toronto Reference Library. Sloan are also playing a free show on May 12th at Yonge-Dundas Square as part of Canadian Music Week.
