Hear the Week's Best New Canadian Music: Arkells, the OBGMs, Tegan and Sara
Published Oct 30, 2020Between Halloween tomorrow and the American election next week, it's both a time for celebration and a time for action — and that's reflected in the brand-new songs that appear on this week's all-Canadian playlist, The Eh! List.
On the political side of things, Dan Mangan has a new folk protest song, while punk lifer Art Bergmann teamed up with MC5's Wayne Kramer for his own political punk anthem.
As for holiday tracks, get into a dark mood thanks to post-punks ACTORS, a horror movie soundtrack from Alexisonfire's Wade MacNeil, an extraterrestrial shoegaze moodpiece from Sleepy Gonzales, and a tune called "Spooky" from Blue J. There are even some early Christmas songs from Tegan and Sara and Carly Rae Jepsen.
Beyond that, there are new tunes from Arkells, Savannah Ré, the OBGMs, Rhye, Lou Phelps, Zach Zoya and more.
Listen to all of the songs below, and follow the playlist for weekly updates highlighting our favourite new Canadian songs. The Eh! List is presented by Mary Brown's Chicken & Taters — all Canadian and proud of it!
