The Canucks have been out of the studio for a few weeks, wrapped up in South By Southwest and various illnesses. But, Justin the Canuck returns this week for a long-overdue SXSW recap show that’ll also feature a ton of brand new music. Tune in to hear songs from some of our favorite SXSW experiences, by artists including Close Talker, Duotang, I.D.A.L.G., Mise en Scene, Royal Tusk, We Are Wolves, and Wild Rivers!

Mixed in with these never-before-played SXSW songs, we’ve got the worldwide radio premiere of Super Pyramid‘s new single, “Living Spaces”. As well, we’ll have new tracks by The Harpoonist & The Axe Murderer, Land of Talk, Like Pacific, Mobina Galore, The New Pornographers, Partner, Peach Pit, Said the Whale, and Sam Patch! Most of these bands have recently released, or will soon be releasing, new albums—and we’ve got the latest for you. Plus, we’ll continue the Neil Young tradition with #73 on Rolling Stone’s countdown of his top songs of all time.

Join Justin the Canuck at 4:30 PM Central on KOOP Radio, 91.7 FM in Austin, Texas and broadcasting to the world at KOOP.org.
