Justin’s top tracks of 2017

To commemorate a fantastic year of independent Canadian music releases, we’ll be presenting 90 minutes of some of the best music we’ve played on the show this year. You might think that putting together a show made up entirely of music we’ve played before would be easy, but no—honing hours and hours of amazing tracks down to just 20 is an excruciatingly painful exercise. Luckily, all the hard work is already complete; you just have to listen!

Which tracks made the cut? Join Justin the Canuck today at 4:30 PM Central to find out! Tune in on KOOP Radio, 91.7 FM in Austin and broadcasting worldwide at

We may have missed Thanksgiving by a day but that’s not going to stop us from giving thanks for new Canadian music! We’ve got a show jam-packed with the latest in independent music from north of border, featuring new tracks by artists including Aidan Knight, Area Resident, Brutal Poodle, Burn the Louvre, Casper Skulls, and Chris Velan. We’ll feature back-to-back tracks by Montreal’s CTZNSHP, plus even more new music by The Deep Dark Woods, Florda Well, Girl Meets Bear, Goodbye Honolulu, Mauno, Penny Diving, and The Ruffled Feathers. And while you start to reach for those leftovers, indulge yourself with new tunes by Scenic Route to Alaska, Stars, Sure, Twist, and Woolworm.

Justin the Canuck will be at the helm for this expression of musical appreciation, Friday at 4:30 PM Central on KOOP Radio—91.7 FM in Austin, Texas and online at!
