Published Sep 23, 2011Fontana North has released a sampler featuring a number of prominent artists from Canada and abroad. Profiling a number of cuts from big names like Louisville's My Morning Jacket to Canadian favourites like Elliott BROOD to a slew of up-and-comers, this album offers up a diverse set of songs for your listening pleasure. Stream the entire sampler here at Exclaim.ca.
To give you a taste of what the sampler has to offer, it kicks off with "Holdin on to Black Metal" from the aforementioned southern rockers in My Morning Jacket's 2011 album Circuital. Billed as a "mariachi punk" band, be sure to give Mariachi El Bronx's "48 Roses" a listen for something uniquely creative.
Experimental musicians Battles also make an appearance on the album with an instrumental track from June's Gloss Drop. If you like what you hear, check them out on their upcoming North American tour dates. Another highlight on the sampler comes from Los Angeles throwback band Fitz and the Tantrums. Get an idea of what their soulful brand of pop music sounds like on "MoneyGrabber."
There's also cuts from Boots Electric (aka Jesse Hughes from Eagles of Death Metal), as well as Toronto music scene veterans Elliott BROOD and Cuff the Duke.
