#songoftheday: Sloan – Follow The Leader/The Answer Was You/Unkind

It’s pretty rare that a band reforms with its original members, 17 years after breaking up, and consistently puts out music that’s just as good, if not better, than all of their pre-breakup material.

Every time I listen to it, I’m convinced that it’s the perfect accompaniment to a lazy river inner tube ride.
