Canadian band with two releases to their name... I personally love both. Some over-compressed sounds, but some interesting sonic happenings as well.

Great music. Very original, in my opinion. This is rock music. Listen and judge for yourself.
yes, us Canadians have a lot more to be proud of these days in the indie rock scene: Arcade Fire, Dears, Stars, Constantines, Hot Hot Heat, New Pornographers, Black Mountain etc etc.

Not like the old days, when our only embarrasing exports seemed to be Bryan and Celine.

Like Sloan, Wintersleep hails from my adopted home of Halifax. Unfortunately, I have yet to have an opportunity to hear them live. I wanted to see them at the Marquee last Friday.
they are very much worth seeing live. i highly recommend it. great bunch of guys, as well.
