While we were away on summer vacation, a ton of new music piled up—much more than can fit in just one show! For the next few weeks, we’ll be combing through the latest releases of August and September to bring you the best of the new music on the Canadian indie scene. And, we’ll be doing all of this in the midst of KOOP’s Fall Membership Drive, which is running throughout the month of September.
