Oh Canada! This week, Steve and Doug start their Canadian run: 26 Canadian bands you may not have heard of but probably should have. They start with Toronto’s Austra, and it seems Doug and Steve don’t see eye to eye on the group. Is it the electronic soundscapes? Is it the operatic voice of Katie Stelmanis? Or is it because Doug and Steve live in Vancouver? Find out in this week’s episode!

Hey, write us a review in iTunes, and you could win Zero 7’s “The Garden”! Listen to the podcast for details.
