'<p><b>An authoritative, unprecedented account of how in the early 2000s Canadian music finally became cool</b></p> <p>Hearts on Fire is about the creative explosion in Canadian music of the early 2000s, which captured the world s attention in entirely new ways.

This is also the story of hippie chicks, turntablists, poetic punks, absurdist pranksters, queer orchestras, obtuse wordsmiths, electronic psychedelic jazz, power-pop supergroups, sexually bold electro queens, cowboys who used to play speed metal, garage rock evangelists, classically trained solo violinists, and the hip-hop scene that precede
