Not too long ago, I compiled a bunch of songs from Montreal-based bands that I loved for a buddy to get to know the excellence that is the city in which I know reside, and so I made From North Of America Vol. 1. This new volume to the series was put together by Arnold and myself, with kind input from Steve and Ethan, featuring some of our favorite new music coming out of Canada, as of the middle of November, 2010, with a focus on the place some of us like to call home – Montreal. These songs were chosen because we love them. We want you to love them too. Enjoy. [Full Disclaimer – mattmaynj plays bass guitar in ‘Count Us Among Your Many Friends’].
