New Jason Collett due next week; live duet with Feist

Canadians make some damn good music. And the scratchy-voiced Jason Collett is one of the best. Collett, a master at keeping the decrepit folk/rock genre somehow seem fresh and inventive, kept listeners in a tizzy over his consistently great Here's To Being Here—one of 2008's best and an album that continues to get better with each listen. Collett, who has a beautiful slurry way with his words, is finally returning with Rat A Tat Tat, due out a week from today. If the first single "Love Is A Dirty Word" is any indication, Collett's creative form remains top notch. Also, make sure to check out his great duet with Feist, "Hangover Days," performed in 2006.
