Vancouver, home to Nardwuar, Carly Rae Jepsen and of course. Japandroids. Canada’s second city is actually its biggest by population and home to a smorgasbord of musicy folk from all genres and walk of life. In honour of their hometown’s talent, Japandroids’ David Prowse has put together a playlist of their favourite Vancouver artists. Here’s Dave:

“So here’s a Vancouver playlist I made on YouTube. A lot of people ask us what Vancouver bands/artists we are into, so it seemed like a good opportunity to share some Vancouver music with people. There are a lot of awesome weirdos making some pretty great videos in Vancouver, so I tried to include some of my favourite videos in the mix since I was on YouTube anyways.”

Dave’s bonus tip: “If you dig this playlist you might also dig the following artists who are also great: Lt Frank Dickens, Holy Hum, Slow Learners, Himalayan Bear, Mesa Luna, White Poppy and Jody Glenham and The Dreamers.”
