New Mixtape – Canada At The Great Escape

Some good stuff on this mixtape we’ve curated, featuring a slew of the Canadian acts set to play the Great Escape next week.

Aside from recent Radar tips Hooded Fang and Doldrums (and the all-conquering Grimes of course), there’s a hell of a lot to get stuck into – Vancouver/Toronto trio Gold & Youth (above) bring to our minds a more poppy XX, while Eight And A Half sound like a drenched’n’dour Empire Of The Sun.

And for the first time at the festival, someone who loves Canada very, very much has decided to get a load of them together for a ‘Canada House’ showcase at The Blind Tiger Club. Here’s the full line-up:
