Digging deep into the library

Usually, we’re all about the hottest, freshest tracks being dropped on the Canadian music scene, but this week we take a break from the hustle and bustle of new releases and dig deep into our Canadian music library to find some great albums we haven’t spun in years. We’ve discovered a show’s worth of oldies-but-goodies by artists including Adam Strangler, Aidan Knight, The Angry Moon, Casper Skulls, Hawksley Workman, Hey Rosetta, Jadea Kelly, Reuben and The Dark, Ruby Coast, Shy Kids, Winter Gloves, Wintersleep, The Wooden Sky, and The Zolas!
