Is the sum greater than the whole or vice versa?

You know who I love? Sloan. How could you not love Sloan? If you are a kid growing up in Canada listening to rock music, you must have sang along to one of their crazily catchy songs one time or another. And their live shows are so much fun. Nobody does a better scissor kick that Chris Murphy (except perhaps Howlin' Pelle of the Hives). In any case... I heart Sloan.

And you know who else I love and admire? River Cuomos of Weezer fame. Come on, the guy probably has his PhD from Harvard by now and he was in one of the definitive bands of the 90's. He's an academic from one of the best ivy league school and he's a rock star! It's like the best of both worlds.

And they joined forces to record the track "Little Diane", a cover a Dion (not Celine) song for River's solo record "Alone, the Home Recordings of Rivers Cuomos".
