I get a lot of Canadian stations living where I do and I've decided that Canada is a step ahead of America on the cool music factor. Or I just haven't listened to the radio in a long time...which is true
July Talk is quite indie I would say. Saw them a few months ago warming up for Matt Mays and they were awesome. Stage chemistry between the lead singers made the show.
People still have pretty terrible taste in general here. Sloan, Sam Roberts, Hip are all well known but I wouldn't call them "popular". I've been at free Sloan shows with only 50 other people. They do well but not amazingly so. Sam does better because he is a damn good looking man.
