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’].

Celebrate Your Scene Vol. 1 – New Jersey

In New Jersey, Procrastination Compilations on March 25, 2010 at 9:38 pm

So as I mentioned earlier, I cannot say enough good things about Titus Andronicus. So I will take this post to say as much good stuff about them and the rest of the current New Jersey music scene, sorry Bon Jovi fan(s), as reasonably tolerable. To demonstrate my true admiration for the music of my home state, I created this compilation to serve as an introduction to the great music coming out of New Jersey (mostly Bergen County, the county in which I reside). We have an ongoing series of mixtapes featuring music from Canada called From North Of America, and so I figured it would be appropriate to also have an ongoing series of music by local musicians from where we come from or used to live. I think it is important to celebrate your local music scene and this is my way of doing so. I hope you find some new music to enjoy.

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.
