From North Of America Vol. 1

In Montréal, Procrastination Compilations on March 9, 2010 at 2:23 pm

So a few weeks ago I made a mixtape (mixcdr?) for a friend compiled from Montreal bands and a few who have members who are at or went to McGill. It seems appropriate that I post it here. I have entitled it “From North Of America Vol. 1” and it consists of 19 songs that serve as a good introduction to the Montreal/McGill music scene.
