Two great compilations have recently been released for download on the internet, and they are two that should not go unnoticed.
In the third installment, Brighton-based Ro Cemm from the Line of Best Fit has released another compilation of great Canadian music for the end of summer. It includes artists such as Dog Day, Bahamas, Amy Millan, Julie Doiron and The Paint Movement (all artists that have been mentioned on RoundLetters!). You can download it here.
A fabulous non-profit that RoundLetters happily promotes (and writes about in the latest issue of Broken Pencil) is Montreal/London’s the Yellow Bird Project. Recently they released their project with illustrator Andy J. Miller, the Indie Rock Colouring Book. This compilation is to commemorate the release. Blogger the Middle Distance Runner makes tons of mix tapes for Baeble Music, titled T.G.I. Mixtape, but this time the talents are turned towards YBP. Now, it appears you cannot fully download this compilation, but it is for full listen here. Artists include Stars, Broken Social Scene, Of Montreal, Au Revoir Simone, K-Os feat Murray Lightburn and Elvis Perkins.
