Why, in 2007, after more than a decade recording, is Ron Sexsmith still virtually unknown outside of his native Canada?

Look for a proper review soon, and in the meantime check out “All In Good Time” below.

180 degrees different from Sexsmith, Rufus Wainwright is on the cusp of releasing a new album. I only just developed an interest in Wainwright’s music a couple of years ago, and only then after a friend suggested his 2003 album Want One. Four years after its release, I’m noticing the album’s fingerprints, with it’s lush production, all over a variety of albums, and of various genres.
