The real world news is mostly depressing and self-defeating so we won’t dwell on it right now. Instead, let’s get to all the great new Canadian music that’s filling up our ear holes this week.

As Glenn Frey once said, “The Heat Is On.” We’re in fake spring right now and the dog turd landmines have begun to thaw while kiddies on bicycles and joggers are out in full force. I expect that some are listening to music while fitting their bits. Below is a whole new batch of Canadiana filling earbuds and smart speakers everywhere.

We’re seeing the world slowly come alive again as lockdowns are lifted and the weather moving toward an inevitable spring. There are even artists planning to tour later in the year if all goes according to plan. There is optimism in the air and we all need a lot of that right now. The food and drink and music are flowing. Here is a whole bunch of the latter…

We’re into March and the weather continues to be as unpredictable as NHL hockey.  Live music is still down the road and hopefully will see some growth when the weather gets better. Until then we have to satisfy ourselves with live streaming and new music releases from Canada’s greatest undiscovered and perpetual talents.

The Canadian music community has exploded this week with activity. If people have the February Blues it’s most probably in a song. It’s so great to see that the pandemic has not slowed down our creativity. Without further ado, here’s where the Canadian music action is…

Well, here we are, half a dozen issues into our rebirth and we’re getting great feedback from the masses. Thank you for reading and thanks for the time you’ve taken to write to use with your new releases and news. The theme in this week’s issue seems to be a leaning toward synth-pop. A coincidence or are we on the verge of a 1980s synth renaissance? Check out the tunes in our Absolutely Indie section below and see for yourself. Anyway, it’s onward we go….

Buckle up kids, the winter is going to make itself very apparent this week throughout most of the already frozen tundra. Polar dippers were greeted with very stiff…water…on Lake Michigan last weekend. Even without a pandemic, this is the perfect time to put on the footie pajamas and snuggle with the fur babies, human babies, and man-babies to listen to some great Canadian music courtesy GWN’s sonic radar.

We’ve moved into February on the cold back end of January now – commemorating the 44th anniversary of the Blizzard of ’77 (uphill, both ways, with no mitts or boots or common sense). Thankfully, we still have music to listen to, and help get us through this opening lap of 2021. Hunker down with a hot cocoa, some Bailey’s, and dig the latest from the GWNtertainment action blotter.
