New Canadian music for your Friday

This week, we’re bringing you another show filled to the brim with brand new Canadian music—so new, in fact, that more than half of the tracks are by artists we’d never even heard of before this week. Yeah—that new.

Just who are these mysterious new bands? Try on these for size: Fonfur, Girl Meets Bear, Ivory Waves, Moon Logic, Mundy’s Bay, Municipality, No Aloha, No Goods, Preston, and The Silkstones. But, that’s not all—we’ve also got new tracks by bands we’ve featured on the show at least once before, such as Adam Strangler, The Belle Game, Chad VanGaalen, Hooded Fang, Mise en Scene, Said the Whale, and Whitehorse.

We’ll round it out with #91 on the Rolling Stone list of the Top 100 Neil Young songs of all time, which is “Love to Burn” from Neil’s album Ragged Glory.

Join Justin the Canuck today—Friday—at 4:30 PM Central for 90 minutes of Canadian music! Tune in on KOOP Radio, 91.7 FM in Austin, TX and broadcasting to the world at KOOP.org!

(Mostly) new Canadian releases!

Who needs a theme? We don’t. On this week’s show, we’re just playing a bunch of (mostly) new Canadian music that spans the genres: from funk to emo, lo-fi garage rock to francophone psychedelia (is that phrancodelia?), and even more in between.

We’ve got a slew of bands never before played on the show, like Dead Beat Poet Society, Emily In the Headlights, Fake Buildings, Gary’s House, and Rose Fargo, plus a listener request for Busty and the Bass. We’ll meander to Montreal for some Peter Peter, then take a listen to upcoming releases by Lost Cousins, Mister Heavenly, and Wolf Parade. Also mixed in will be tracks by Betrayers, Evening Hymns, Land of Talk, Louise Burns, Rival Boys, Silverstein, Stars, and That’s the Spirit. Plus, we’re reaching the end of our Neil Young countdown—this week, we bring you #89 on the list, which comes from 1989’s Freedom.

Join Justin the Canuck today—Friday—at 4:30 PM Central for 90 minutes of Canadian music! Tune in on KOOP Radio, 91.7 FM in Austin, TX and broadcasting to the world at KOOP.org!
