In the five o’clock hour, we’ll also have special four-song spotlight on Moneen, with tracks both from their early days and from their emo peak in the mid-2000s.
And we’re not done yet—we’ve also got great tracks by Breeze, Charlotte Cardin, Code Pie, Cookie Duster, Steady Phase, Tree Speak, YESS WOAH, and Young Galaxy.
That’s all happening today at 4:30 PM Central. Join Justin the Canuck for 90 minutes of Canadian indie tunes, on the Austin airwaves at 91.7 FM and online, broadcasting to the world, at KOOP.org.
