They have some new(er) tracks on their MySpace page, but it hasn't been updated in quite some time.

Re: Any Canadian Music Fans?

I may have missed the mention, but I didn't notice Tal Bachman. His self titled album is one of my all time favorites. I also love Matthew Good's last studio album and what I've heard of his earlier work (haven't really taken the time to explore that full catalog...).

Re: Any Canadian Music Fans?

Aside from those already mentioned in this thread, some of my "obscure" favourites are:

The Old Soul (imagine The Flaming Lips as a drunken bar band)
dbClifford (pop-soul singer in Jamiroquai vein, with serious jazz keyboard chops)
Roz Bell (more pop-soul, the biggest influences I hear are The Police and Maroon 5)

Forgot about The Tea Party. They're alright in my book, too.

One band I could never really get into, though, that has been mentioned, is The Tragically Hip. Not that I think they're bad or anything - they just never did anything for me, personally.

And at least two new singles (after the concert), but no album.

Re: Any Canadian Music Fans?

Brian Byrne is totally underrated.

In other news, Matthew Good is currently doing an acoustic US tour. If you know what's good for you, yall should make an effort to go see him.

Also, Joel Plaskett is releasing a new song each week for ten weeks in a row. He's one of Canada's best folk rockers. I saw him play in a church once.

Re: Any Canadian Music Fans?

I must be the oldest person reading this thread, since Canadian music to me means Gordon Lightfoot and the Guess Who. (Unless I'm mistaken, nobody mentioned either of them).

And if you know what Gordon sounds like, Burton Cummings does an astonishingly perfect impression.

I mentioned The Guess Who. Gordon is a Canadian treasure.

My absolute favorite performance from Live 8:

Re: Any Canadian Music Fans?

Quite a few good bands mentioned, although I seem to be in the minority about Bryan Adams, but one I didn't seem mentioned was Harem Scarem. Obviously their style of music leaves a lot to be desired, but within that genre, they are standouts.

Their vocal harmonies were virtually unparalleled and even though not all of their albums are universally loved, their home runs were out of the stadium shots.

Re: Any Canadian Music Fans?

That's awesome. You should go. You have no excuse not to.
Looks like I'm going to get to see him in Dallas on the 22nd. Not sure how big the House of Blues is, but I'm excited. His acoustic shows are, by far, his best.

I do actually Already have the following concerts on the books...one more would hurt family stability.

Buck 65, John K Samson, Plants & Animals, Puscifer and Roger Waters.

Interestingly enough - 3/5 are Canadian.

Re: Any Canadian Music Fans?

Hmm. I've never heard of John K Samson. I'll have to check out his new one.

Buck 65 did a track with Matt Mays once. You'd like him, too (nothing like Buck 65. More like a flappy-headed Tom Petty)

He's the lead singer of The Weakerthans, old bass player for Propagandhi The solo stuff is much more mellow than even The Weakerthans.

I'll check spotify for Matt Mays now...

Re: Any Canadian Music Fans?

Cool. I really like The Weakerthans.

The "Matt Mays & El Torpedo" album is probably the best.
The track with Buck 65 is the title track from "When the Angels Make Contact"
