Every so often we run a show with music so new, even we don’t know some of the artists.
We’ve got a bevy of new tracks by artists we’ve never played before, including Diamond Mind, Fish Food, Heaven for Real, The Highest Order, and La Fête. Along with these first-timers, we’ve got a playlist bursting with entirely new Canadian music, featuring the latest by Arkells, Beauts, Imaginary Cities, Jane’s Party, Dan Mangan, and Moonface & Siinai. Plus, even more brand new music by Preoccupations (formerly known as Viet Cong), The Provincial Archive, Sidney York, The Tragically Hip, Tuns, Twin River, and White Lung.
We head back to the ’80s for this week’s Neil Young Song of the Week, and we’ll talk about how you can hear The Hip’s final concert—without flying to Toronto.
Tune in Friday at 4:30 PM Central for your fix of the latest and greatest on the Canadian indie scene—broadcasting live on KOOP Radio, 91.7 FM in Austin, Texas and streaming worldwide at KOOP.org!
