Sloan 12 is indeed the 12th album from Canadian power-pop perennials, which means it’s as good as Led Zeppelin IV, Black Sabbath’s 4, and Chicago 4 all put together. But seriously: not only are Sloan the rare band to make it to their 12th record, and not only are Sloan the rare band to make it to their 12th record with all four original members, and not only are Sloan the rare band to make it to their 12th album with four original members who are equally prolific songwriters, they’re arguably the only band to make it to their 12th album with four original members who are both equally prolific songwriters and all still working at the top of their respective games, sounding utterly ageless in the process. On 12, each of the four principals contributes three stellar songs that play to their core strengths: Patrick Pentland with the soaring rock anthems, Chris Murphy with the playful, participatory sing-alongs, Jay Ferguson with the jaunty prog-pop gems, and Andrew Scott with the whimsical Innerspace explorations. Says Murphy, “I guess with the album title, we are showing off the fact that we have 12 records.
They are Toronto-based rock/power pop quartet from Halifax, Nova Scotia. Throughout their career, Sloan has released 12 full-length albums, two EPs, a live album, a Greatest Hits album and more than 30 singles. The band has received nine Juno Award nominations, winning one. The band is known for their sharing of songwriting from each member of the group and their unaltered line-up throughout their career.
