Oh! Canada Mixtapes by The Line Of Best Fit

One of my favourite music websites is one out of The UK called The Line Of Best Fit. They do a great job of unearthing new music from around the world, and a lot of it overlaps with the kind of stuff Timber & Steel look out for. Their writers and reviewers are talented, their insight is phenomenal, and their work-load is commendable. One of my favourite aspects of the website is the Oh! Canada column which brings to light new music specifically from Canada. When they started publishing this column in mid 2009 they also began releasing free compilation mixtapes showcasing the bands that they wanted to stand behind. You may remember the story we posted publicising the release of their Ho! Ho! Ho! Canada Deux mixtape in December which featured some fantastic indie-folk bands like The Mountains & The Trees, The Wilderness of Manitoba, Woodpigeon & The Great Lake Swimmers. Little did I know at that stage that these mixtapes are released regularly with new artists and songs to discover. Just recently TLOBF released Oh! Canada Volume 15, which, as always, is available for free download. The music on these mixtapes varies in style, so if you’re only looking for specifically folk-ish tracks you’ll have to comb through them- but I’ve gone through the archives and have found the articles for all of the Oh! Canada mixtapes ever produced by TLOBF, and they’re all linked below:
