Oh! Canada, Vol. 1

Posted by bigincanada on June 12, 2009

Many thanks to the kind people over at “The Line of Best Fit” – an awesome music site based out of the UK – for keeping us up to date about some of the great things that they have going on over there! First and foremost, they have a new section called “Oh! Canada,” which currently features a piece on this year’s Canadian Blast! showcase (Dan Mangan, Ultimate Power Duo, Hey Rosetta!, Arkells, and many, many more) from the Great Escape Festival.

To take things one step further, they have also teamed up with a variety of artists and labels to release a compilation of tracks that they have aptly titled “Oh! Canada, Vol. 1.” Some of the notables on there: Hey Rosetta!, Dan Mangan, and Ohbijou. It is definitely worth checking out, and be sure to send a big thank you to our newly-made friends in the UK – The Line of Best Fit – while you’re over there.
