Summer time can only mean one thing: music festivals galore. One we’re really excited for is this year’s Osheaga Music Festival, which takes place in Montreal from August 3 – 5. Named one of Pitchfork’s 20 Essential Festivals of Summer 2012, Osheaga will span three days, four stages and a list of performances so long that you’ll need to carefully map out your schedule or else you might risk missing out on one of your favourite bands!

As we all know, Cameron Crowe loves him some Sigur Rós. And so he hired frontman Jónsi to score his new film We Bought A Zoo. As some of us know, Jónsi loves working on movies, as he demonstrated last year when he wrote “Sticks and Stones” for How To Train Your Dragon. So it […]
