The Great Canadian Mixtape Project

Just before I jump into this, Shuyler Jansen was amazing last night. He and Deep Dark Woods packed the Railway Club and he burned through his set. Sampling from his latest record, he back catalog and even a few Old Reliable tunes, Shulyer really delivered the goods.

Anyway. Back to the post. Shane and I are trying to do a little Canadian based project. The goal obviously is to keep showcasing the splendor that is Canadian music. So the goal is to make a mix for each province, and have you the readers decide who you think deserves to represent each province.

We are going to start with Nova Scotia, as we were born there and really spend a lot of our time trying to highlight the Halifax scene. So next Saturday we will be posting the first installment of this series (tentatively called The Big Doe-nair Rehab). If you have any bands that you think deserve to be added to the NS (or any other province), let us know.

Here's a track from the biggest name in Canadian music to get you all inspired:
[MP3]:: Heart of Gold - Neil Young

For the sake of the old ones among us, give us some trush hermit in your NS selection and some eric's trip for the NB.

I think RecordBreaker deserve some consideration for the ON selection.
