MIXTAPE: Oh, Canada!


Growing up and living in a border city like Buffalo means you hear our Canadian brethren on the radio, playing in local clubs and discussed around the water cooler. Canadians tend to stick together, so even though my city is physically near Toronto, Canadian radio likes to promote its own countrymen. So you hear all of it loud and proud.

Nothing from the legendary Rush here this time. And I certainly skipped Bryan Adams and Tom Cochrane. Here is a mix of bands from North of the Border that you might have missed.

Liner Notes:

For the most part this is what I would call alternative rock. Tons of classifications you could lump these in to. But, call it what you want, I just call it good. And for good measure I had to throw a few heavy ones in, ya know, eh?


If you like the bands – support them and buy their music.
