Hear the Week's Best New Canadian Music: KEN mode, Dominique Fils-Aimé, Dragonette

BY Exclaim! StaffPublished Sep 22, 2023

It's been a big week for celebrating the shimmering stars in Canadian music, with DEBBY FRIDAY taking home this year's coveted Polaris Music Prize for her debut album GOOD LUCK. As always, there's a boatload of new CanCon to offer you this week — some of which may signal future contenders.

Dragonette is "Literally Dead" but back with a deluxe version of last year's Twennies. And we have oh-so-many album releases, including full-lengths from KEN mode (VOID), Dominique Files-Aimé, Arkells, Le Couleur, Apollo Suns, Kevin Drew and Fur Trade.

Elsewhere, Ruby Singh communes with nature, Abigail Lapell sings you to sleep in multiple languages, Sluice celebrate Acadian history, and Tim Baker is looking ahead to Thanksgiving with "Pilgrims."

Find all of those winners and many more with The Eh! List below, presented by Mary Brown's Chicken & Taters — all Canadian and proud of it!
