To help ring in Canada Day, myself and Wake The Deaf got together and each compiled a 20 track mix tape featuring some of our favourite Canadian artists (for all you anti-math folks out there, that's a total of 40 different Canadian artists). Originally, the mixes were going to be 15 tracks each, but we both agreed that having an extra 5 tracks would make us feel slightly less guilty about leaving out some of our favourites (although, we could have easily of made these mixes even longer.)
So press play on the above collection and sit back and really savour that jar of pure maple syrup that you've been saving for today. And while you're savouring that sweet syrup, maybe consider writing a paper entitled ‘Why Countries That Experience 6 months Of Winter Make Such Great Music‘.
