The playlist this week is full of all the new music Canadian artists have been creating. And that is a lot! We have both a Spotify Release Radar playlist and a YouTube new video release playlist to help you discover new music.

The YouTube playlist has over 50 new uploads this month. The videos are usually pretty fun to check out and I encourage you to do so.

The Spotify Release Radar playlist has about 200 songs on it this month! The tracks are all new releases with some being teasers for upcoming albums, some from just released albums or eps, and some are stand alone singles. Along with songs from OurBasement featured artists, there are some tracks discovered through Exclaim or !Earshot. This month I was most excited about the songs from The Zolas, Plants and Animals, Dizzy, The Elwins and so many others. Royal Canoe, Kathleen Edwards, Jill Barber, Melted Wings, The Jerry Cans, and others all had more new tracks for us to enjoy this month as well. I am so proud of all the talented artists we have in Canada and very glad that they are still releasing music during these difficult days.

Enjoy the playlists! There are new discoveries waiting to be had.

Don’t forget to follow DarBar’s Picks for the latest new releases catching my ear. The playlist is updated weekly.
