This double CD set is a showcase by the Canadian indie label Arts & Crafts Productions. On the occasion of the tenth anniversary of its first release, it summarizes 34 songs from 24 acts from its portfolio - from Apostle Of Hustle to Zeus. "Arts & Crafts 2003-2013" is a wonderful cross-section, showing how the company ticks and where Canada's indie scene stands. Both CDs are opened by Broken Social Scene (represented by "7/4", "Lover's Spit" and "Deathcock") - of course, their album "You Forgot It In People" was the first release on Arts & Crafts. In addition, band member Kevin Drew is co-founder of the Toronto-based record company. Of course there are also songs by the internationally known label acts Feist ("Mushaboom", "I Feel It All", "Islands In The Stream" [with Constantines]), stars ("Elevator Love Letter", "Your Ex-Lover Is Dead", "Rollerskate"), The Most Serene Republic ("Content Was Always My Favorite Colour"), Apostle Of Hustle ("Folkloric Feel") as well as the Mehmet-Scholl favourite The Hidden Cameras ("Mind, Matter And Waste") on the discophil designed compilation. A maple leaf compilation you can't go wrong with.
