while not a halifax band in the strictest sense, eric's trip are a
major band on the scene here.
they have an album on sub pop, _love tara_
they have an e.p. on murderecords (my personal fave) called _peter_
(it's been widely distributed in the states, cd/cass)
there's a couple sub pop 7"/CD-EP releases that i really like:
_songs about chris_ and a new one called _the gordon street haunting_

other than that, there is always the mail order option.
cinnamon toast records:  2464 robie st, halifax, ns, canada, b3k 4n1
murderecords:  p.o. box 2372 hfx central, halifax, ns, canada, b3j 3e4

you should have a look at the catalogues on our ftp site.

by the way, the new jale album gets its u.s. release in july,
the new sloan album comes out in august.
