Canada has an extensive history of producing great bands – arguably never more so than the past 15 years. Arcade Fire, Broken Social Scene, The New Pornographers, Destroyer, and Wolf Parade are just a few of the indie all-stars to call Canada home. Hailing from Winnipeg, Departures might someday find themselves regularly mentioned in the same breath. “Pillars” and “Being There” are two promising examples of their soaring post-punk that can attest to that. You can stream the whole album here or here.
