Pssst! Secretly Canadian Release 100th Album, Celebrate Quietly with Molsons

Secretly Canadian is actually up to release number 122 (The Horns of Happiness, natch) but their official 100th, apparently long-delayed, comes out next week. Long a wonderlabel, a source of generally uncommercial, often unhinged, and almost always top-notch music, they've scored some bona fide hits lately with Antony, and on a smaller scale Jens Lekman. (I've got a special place in my heart for a sadly out of print a capella comp The Unaccompanied Voice, featuring Mark Kozelek, Damien Jurado, and Mia Doi Todd in French).

Their "100th" release is a collection of SC artists covering each other, and they've made two of the tracks available for download, along with an online bonus non-album song. The best of these three is probably Dave Fischoff's take on Damien Jurado's "Abilene", although the late Nikki Sudden is in top form as well. Marmoset's cover of "Black Cab" might not need to be heard more than once, but you can always enjoy the fantastic original, one of the best pop songs of the century.
