Sonic Treat of the Day: The Most Serene Republic


The Most Serene Republic has invaded my iTunes this week. Blame Canada. Good shit. Bad shit. Whatever. But let's be honest: We need to stop hating on Canada. They have given us some of the best music I've heard in the past 10 years. The Most Serene Republic is definitely another addition to my list of faves from our neighbors to the north or whatever the fuck they say.

CLICK HERE for a little treat from me to you.

Their latest effort is a 6 song EP titled 'Fantasick Impossibliss' and is definitely worth your hard earned money (for you non trust fund kiddos). Radiohead-esque progressions on the title track...my heart is theirs. Louder. Louder. Louder. iTunes had the hook up or you can hit up a show and give the band your money directly. It's my favorite way to support the artists I like. And buy a shirt or something. For fuck's sake, do you really need that 4th Jack n Coke? No. You don't.
