Since 2006, Secret City Records has been putting out amazing records that immediately became classics among Canadian music fans. Their star-studded roster includes Basia Bulat, The Barr Brothers, Patrick Watson, Owen Pallett and Plants and Animals. To celebrate their 10th anniversary, the Montreal-based label has put together a compilation featuring 39 tracks.
From Patrick Watson’s “Daydreamer”, second track of the Polaris-winning album Close to Paradise, to tunes by bubbling acts like Suuns and Thus Owls, the Secret City Records 10th anniversary compilation makes up a historical document of the amazing musicians that have made this such a charming label.
The party does not end there. The label has also celebrated with a special showcase at POP Montreal, and if you’re around their hometown, drop by the Aux 33 Tours record store to get an exclusive tote bag when you purchase one of their releases.
