So there was that total solar eclipse thing that happened on Monday, right? Science rules. Anyway, now that you've done irrevocable damage to your Spotify Wrapped (and hopefully not your retinas) by playing "Total Eclipse of the Heart" on repeat, uncover another natural phenomenon: the week's best new Canadian music.

New TOBi joint alert! Continuing his hot streak, the rapper once again teams up with Mick Jenkins on "Forgot We Were Seeds."

It's also a big week for album releases, with new records from iskwē (nīna), METZ (Up on Gravity Hill), Nicolette & the Nobodies (The Long Way) and Scenic Route to Alaska. Plus, the BADBADNOTGOOD-produced Baby Rose EP.

Elsewhere, Lennon Stella joins forces with Madi Diaz on "One Less Question," and Boy Golden is "Here to Stay." Meanwhile, Caribou splits the difference with "Honey," and Cola lead off their sophomore LP The Gloss with "Pallor Tricks."

Go on, you know you wanna look directly at The Eh! List below, presented by Mary Brown's Chicken & Taters — all Canadian and proud of it!
