BY Exclaim! StaffPublished Mar 8, 2024

Wishing all women a very good day on this International Women's Day. Everyone else can suck it! Just kidding (kind of). But even if it isn't your day, you can still partake in relishing the week's best new Canadian music, where homegrown artists — many of them being women — have shown up and shown out as per.

This week, we have the return of Dear Rouge, and Naomi is a whole-ass phenomenon. Rochelle Jordan lends her gorgeous voice to a Sango song, and Eva Shaw joins forces with DijahSB for "RVPTVRE."

There's a new album from Homeshake, as well as an irresistible remix EP from La Sécurité.

Elsewhere, Laraw and OLGA have both previewed their forthcoming albums with standout singles that would impress even Shiv and the Carvers, who deliver a punk rendition of Shania Twain's iconic "That Don't Impress Me Much." Good Kid are dreaming of "Summer," and Blunt Chunks likewise has "High Hopes," while Mustafa explores Muslim love in Western society on "Imaan," and Fionn confront jealousy on "Your Type."

Find multitudes (not the Feist album, but if someone asks you to name a woman today, there's a good place to start!) contained within The Eh! List below, presented by Mary Brown's Chicken & Taters — all Canadian and proud of it!
