Various - Cinnamon Toast (Records): Trim Crusts If Desired (1994)

In the 1990s, Halifax, Nova Scotia was ground-zero for quality indie-pop, and an extra special treat for fans across the border. In total, no less than five acts from this fabled locale (Sloan, Eric's Trip, Hardship Post, Thrush Hermit, and jale) had indie or major label deals in the States. By the mid '90s virtually everyone that had been swept up by this maritime phenomenon professed that Sloan were the cream de la creme, end of discussion.

1994 saw the release of the Trim Crusts If Desired compilation on the once venerable Cinnamon Toast label based in Halifax. At 15 tracks this hour of power is an accurate snapshot of the local scene at the time, featuring The Hardship Post's finest moment, "Won't You Come Home," as well as worthy contributions from jale, Rebecca West, Eric's Trip, and Thrush Hermit. Oh yeah, I almost forgot to mention, Sloan aren't anywhere to be found on this disk. Sure, Trim Crusts has it's share of non-names and duds, but by now you know the drill. Hear the album for yourself. Enjoy (or not)
