We air three This Way North singles as well as tracks from the Shiny Coin/Spit split record and a track a piece from Josh Sahunta of Edmonton, AB and Sir Reginald who got in touch with us from Australia (don’t forget to get in touch with us via email if you’d like your independent tunes aired on the show).

Jerk In The Can – ‘What’s Your Name?’ [CA]

This week I read on the I-94 Bar website a glowing review of a rare local show by Sydney-based punk stalwarts The Celibate Rifles.  So I was inspired to revisit three classics from the band’s catalogue at the top of the show.   We introduce listeners to Kiwi-based soul/r&b artist Aaradhna whose song ‘Brown Girl’ is a response to her experiences with racism.  We shift gears with a track from Montreal-based metal band Floating Widget‘s debut record.  And we also feature tracks from the sophisticated folk/pop Vancouver-based outfit Jasper Sloan Yip and Frontal Lobotomy, a cool three-piece folk act from Prince George, BC who I had the good fortune to see live recently.

And lots of great new Canadian music in the 2nd half of the show including tracks from Toronto-based acts Julie and the Wrong Guys (featuring Eamon McGrath) and Century Palm.
