|SCENE AND HEARD showcases the independent music scene here in Vancouver.
With over 36,000+ artists, boasting more than 150,000+ tracks, the CBC Music/CBC Radio 3 web site is the absolute ultimate authority, and the home, of independent music in Canada. With that massive library along with tools for members (free to join!), we’re taking advantage of what they’ve set up by bringing you a fresh batch of music every week featuring local groups who have tracks (entire albums, even!) on the R3 site.
I’m so excited to be able to present you this week’s playlist, from Vancouver super-group Mounties! Their album just came out and they’re finally playlist a hometown show – on Friday at the Commodore with Rich Aucoin and JPNSGRLS.
We asked the band to put together this week’s playlist, which should start your week off with a lot of rock and roll – oh and fun fact, all of the songs were mixed by Steve Bays in his studio: Tugboat PI. Enjoy (click below to hear the playlist) and get your tickets for the show ASAP!:
