The new Dallas Green City and Colour album has a track called "Sleeping Sickness". "Sleeping Sickness" features Gord Downie from The Tragically Hip. You can listen to this song and the rest of the new City and Colour album Bring Me Your Love on the City and Colour MySpace page.
Last March I shared the video for The Tragically Hip's "Yer Not The Ocean" and asked if anyone knew where I could find the featured suspension bridge. Some guessed it was the Capilano Suspension Bridge in North Vancouver but that wasn't it. Then some thought it might be the suspension
City And Colour, Dallas Green's solo project, is releasing a second album in February entitled Bring Me Your Love. I'm most interested in hearing "Sleeping Sickness". "Sleeping Sickness" features guest vocals by none other than Gord Downie from The Tragically Hip. The first person to score me a listen wins
Johnny Fay, drummer for my favourite band of all-time, once famously quipped that being the biggest band in Canada is "like being the world's tallest midgets." I always liked the quote, and I was pleased to see it in an Aspen Times News headline today. The Tragically Hip are in
The Sweet Hereafter, a great Atom Egoyan film, features a cover of The Tragically Hip's "Courage" sung by Sarah Polley. I've always liked this haunting reworking of the tune and meant to share this video some time ago.
I'm all about one-stop shopping. The sole purpose of this entry is to give me easy access to every Tragically Hip video from one convenient page.

New York Press has a neat article about The Tragically Hip entitled "Hip Check: The biggest band in Canada is not from Montreal". The article includes a great quote from Gord Downie regarding the effect downloading has had on the music business. I’ve always felt that rock ’n’ roll
We recently determined that the suspension bridge featured in the Tragically Hip's "Yer Not the Ocean" video isn't the Capilano Suspension Bridge in North Vancouver. Some suggested it might be the suspension bridge at Scenic Caves in Collingwood, Ontario, but as you'll see below, that's not it either. Is it
I recently posted the video for The Tragically Hip's new single, "Yer Not the Ocean". There's a suspension bridge featured in the video that I'm trying to identify. A couple of commenters think it's the Capilano Suspension Bridge in North Vancouver but I disagree. Below is a picture of the
The Tragically Hip's newest video is for "Yer Not the Ocean". It features a polar bear and seems to have an environmental message for us all. Gordie with a message about the environment? Shocking! Can anyone tell me what park Gord and that polar bear are in? Where would I
I've been hearing from people since I posted a Tragically Hip hater's analysis of the band. Some agree with him, others know exactly where he's coming from. All of this has got me thinking... I think you either get it, or you don't. If you get it, you get it
When I shared Gord Downie's Hallelujah with a reader named Whorella Mundane, she told me I redeemed all of Canada. I must have thought that was pretty cool because it prompted me to write this. I just got another message from Whorella Mundane. Here's her manically wicked email in its

Last night, the number of times I've seen The Tragically Hip live in concert hit double digits. Ryan and I got to our seats at the Air Canada Centre early to catch Buck 65. This Nova Scotian is unique. He's got a DJ spinning wax while he raps, but it's
The Hip don't perform many cover songs in concert. I keep detailed statistics of every Hip song I've seen performed live and there's not a single cover song in the mix. On this tour, however, Gord and the boys are singing a different cover each stop. Tonight I'll be seeing
They've announced the nominees for the 2007 Juno Awards in Saskatoon. The Tragically Hip received four nominations: Group Of The Year, Rock Album Of The Year, Jack Richardson Producer Of The Year and CD/DVD Artwork Design Of The Year. I'm surprised they missed out on a nomination for single
Yesterday I wrote about songs that reference Canada. I promised I'd share my ten favourite musical references to my home and native land. Here are my top ten with apologies to Stompin' Tom Connors. "Bobcaygeon" by The Tragically Hip - I'm starting this list with Bobcaygeon because it's a village
Back in June I wrote about Sophie's response to my Hallelujah hunt. I finally had an MP3 of this elusive Gord Downie cover of Leonard Cohen's classic that was heard during the sweet Canadian flick "Saint Ralph". I had the MP3 and I wanted to share it with other Hallelujah
I still think about that June 24 Tragically Hip show at Fort York. Here's the review I wrote the next morning. Besides being a fantastic show with great audio and a perfect venue there was "38 Years Old". My 13 for 38 entry sheds some light on why this was
All morning I've been fielding emails from Hip fans wanting to know the password for this morning's presale. This happens every time The Tragically Hip announce a new tour. If you Google tragically hip presale password, I'm #1 with a bullet, making me a prime target for such queries. When
"The Hour", George Stroumboulopoulos' show on CBC Newsworld and CBC, is dedicating tonight's episode to a performance by The Tragically Hip. It airs on Newsword at 8pm and CBC proper at 11pm.
World Container World Album Premiere - Since today is national Hip day, I thought this was a cool link to share with fellow fans of Canada's band. This is Gord and the boys discussing the new album while they play each song. There's great insight and another opportunity to hear
