Hear the Week's Best New Canadian Music: DijahSB, the Halluci Nation, Fucked Up, Mother Mother

BY Exclaim! StaffPublished Nov 3, 2023

November is here! Everything is shrouded in darkness! But, if you're, like, a farmer or something, relief is on its way this weekend in the form of Daylight Savings Time, and Canadian artists are on a similar mission to let the light in with this week's crop of new releases.

DijahSB leads off their forthcoming new album with Anderson .Paak-inspired realness, and the Halluci Nation introduce us to rival wrestling nations with The Road to Halluci Mania, one being led by Fucked Up's Damian Abraham. His band also have a new song out, "Spot the Difference," while Mother Mother continue to enjoy their renaissance on "The Matrix" — the lead single from their new album Grief Chapter.

This week in album releases, we have new full-lengths from Badge Époque Ensemble (Air, Light & Harmony), Kevin Drew, Jon Vinyl, Majid Jordan, Bry Webb (Run with Me) and Sluice. There's also the Tragically Hip's Phantom Power 25th anniversary expansion, as well as a surprise live album from U.S. Girls and a new Spiritbox EP.

Elsewhere, JEEN teams up with Ian Blurton for "Hold My Head Up Higher." Meanwhile, Georgia Harmer, Field Guide, Kris Urlich and Julian Psihogios join forces as Dweller to debut their first single together, "Leave This Home."

Relish the light at the end of the tunnel with The Eh! List below, presented by Mary Brown's Chicken & Taters — all Canadian and proud of it!
