We’ve got a slate of almost entirely new tracks from artists like Ace of Wands, Basia Bulat, Bruce Peninsula, Caribou, Carmanah, Dana Gavanski, Eliza Niemi, Gord Bamford, Harrow Fair, Hot Garbage, Jaunt, July Talk, Le Couleur, NOBRO, Peach Pit, Pottery, Real Sickies, Rich Aucoin, and Sarah Harmer!

The KOOP studios have been closed for a month now and it’s been quite a while since we’ve been able to bring y’all your weekly serving of independent Canadian music.

We’ll be running a special homemade—literally, produced at home!—episode of This Great White North, airing during our regularly scheduled time, this week!

We’re excited to bring y’all a selection of new and classic tracks by artists including Arkells, Blackpaw Society, Dan Mangan, Danny Michel, Dizzy, Ellis, Hannah Georgas, Purity Ring, The Pack a.d., TOPS, U.S. Girls, Wild Rivers, and Wildlife!
