New Canadian Music

Launched at CMW in late March, 2012, New Canadian Music provides hard data on what comes out in this country and how popular it is, along with editorial insights and opinion. Every week the site's editors scour the web and pulls together a comprehensive list of Canadian releases, along with as many sources for the music as possible - iTunes, Rdio, SoundCloud, BandCamp and a host of others - along with short write-ups and biographical details about the artists. The editorial offering is rounded out with a column by veteran journalist David Farrell, a steady stream of short newsworthy items and videos, and a linear music stream that features the best hand-picked tracks from the current week's release pool. The NCM Chart draws on social media data to analyze and rank the most popular Canadian artists, in both the established and emerging category.
