To coincide with the 35th annual Juno Awards, the Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences has released a four-CD third volume of just the sort of radio-friendly pop made by well-connected white folks that the Junos celebrates. So while you get Rush's Closer To The Heart, Nick Gilder's Hot Child In The City, Anne Murray's Snowbird right through to Sum 41's Pieces and Avril Lavigne's Complicated, there's no blues, reggae, instrumental jazz, bluegrass, hardcore punk, salsa, gospel, metal, techno, calypso, electronic or classical music at all. The only songs that could be confused with hiphop are by Buck 65 and Swollen Members. Amazing. While clearly a piss-poor representation of the diversity of exciting music made in Canada for Canadians, it's actually an accurate indication of just how out of touch the Junos have become. With any luck, Juno winners Arcade Fire, the New Pornographers and Hilario Duran will make it onto Volume 17, but don't hold your breath.
