Future Nostalgia is the latest from Saskatoon boogie rock group The Sheepdogs. Natasha St-Pier of Bathurst, NB gets the Acadian folk jangling on Mon Acadie with featured guests that include Roch Voisine and Édith Butler. The West Coast adds more folk to the pool thanks to Vancouver’s Good For Grapes and The Ropes. Midland, ON’s Born Ruffians ups the quirkiness via alternative album Ruff. More from the alternative field appears from Vancouver’s Dralms and Shook. Folky singer-songwriter outfit Towers and Trees releases The West Coast from Victoria, BC.
