Sloan - Commonwealth

Sloan, the Canadian power-pop band, has been cranking out albums on a consistent basis since 1991. Their second full album, Twice Removed, was named by Spin Magazine to be one of the “Best Albums You Didn’t Hear” in 1994. The album was also named the Best Canadian Album ever by a Chart Magazine readers poll in 2005. Sloan has been nominated for multiple Juno awards and won one for the Best Alternative Album in 1997 for their third album, One Chord to Another. Each of their first four records went gold in Canada.

On September 9 they release their eleventh album, Commonwealth. Sloan is known for each member of the band making strong contributions to each album. This time around, they are going for a double album where each member gets a complete side to highlight their own creative input. You can stream the entire album for a limited time.
