Staff Picks: "Provincial" and "Closing Time"
By Jennifer Hardy on Jul 04, 2012
Each week, Music Canada will be opening up our blog to members of our staff, as well as our neighbours at AVLA, to share their musical picks of the week: one new release and one classic cut. This week's picks come from Jennifer Hardy, General Manager of Operations at Music Canada.
John K. Samson - "Provincial"
This is a beautiful record. You can stream some of the songs at CBC Music I also unreservedly recommend every single release by The Weakerthans. John’s website is: http://johnksamson.com/.
You can purchase “Provincial” and all Weakerthans releases here:
