Empire State

Man of Steel”, the Zack Snyder-directed Superman epic, tops Yahoo!’s “Ultimate Summer Movie Poll” as audience “Favorite Summer Movie”.

The film opens today, August 30, in Japan – and it’s super-fitting our friend, photographer, Amy Neufeld shares this new pic of Allison Crowe on her own epic adventure, earlier this Summer, in New York City for the World Premiere.

Allison is here seated in the lobby of the Hotel Empire, moments before joining the red carpet ceremony at NYC's Lincoln Center.

"I saw rock and roll future..."

Tom Harrison, dean of Canadian rock music critics, writes for The Province newspaper - the most widely-read daily in the province of British Columbia.

It's a long holiday weekend across Canada - and, due to a quirk in the world of online/print media, we're able to read what's published next Tuesday in the paper - and, therein his weekly Garage column, Harrison selects:


"Allison Crowe is bi-coastal and her latest record on her own Rubenesque label isn’t a CD. She is from Nanaimo and her manager still lives on Vancouver Island, so, the island ties are there even if she now lives most of the time in Corner Brook, Nfld. Crowe’s ninth record is weirdly typical of her in that it defies convention, stick-handles around the pop idiom, shows imagination and daring, and opts for vinyl. Her Newfoundland Vinyl balances traditional folk and more contemporary sounds that serves as well as a soundtrack to a Newfoundland festival. A marvellous singer, Crowe plays down vocal gymnastics in favour of restraint, which translates as respect. The arrangements are minimal — often no more than guitar enhanced by background vocals — with a little humour thrown in to lighten the load."

Alongside those fine stores in Newfoundland and on Vancouver Island previously noted, "Newfoundland Vinyl", ((limited-edition 180 gr. vinyl LP incl. digital d/l code), is now available in Vancouver, Canada at:

Highlife Records (1317 Commercial Drive); Neptoon Records (3561 Main); Red Cat Records (4332 Main); and Zulu Records (1972 - 1976 West 4th)
