Here’s a free, 17-track, download called “Hamont Music Recap ’16”, a round up curated by Dylan “The Dill” Hudecki that offers a snapshot of the Hamilton scene in 2016 and to amplify its noise well beyond city limits.

You already know that Arkells, Monster Truck, Jessy Lanza, Terra Lightfoot, Junior Boys and Dirty Nil are all doing great out there across Canada and beyond. But the rest of the #HamOnt indie music scene is still thriving as always.

Indeed, a few of these artists are people we’ve mentioned already. Some have even made it on to the some popular “Canadian Songs of 2016” lists found on so many music blogs around this time of the year. But if you take a listen, you’ll see a city that is hitting above its weight.

Do you like the album? Does your part of the world produce samplers and if not do you thing they should?
