Great Aunt Ida

One of my favourite websites is the CBC's New Music Canada, a showcase of the best English-Canadian independent music. Makes you proud to be a taxpayer, really. From time to time I'm going to post my old favourites and recent coups de coeur.

Today it's Vancouver's Ida Nilsen, a.k.a. Great Aunt Ida (also of Radiogram and The Gay). Tout simplement alt-folk at its best, and what a sweet voice! Have a listen to Macarena from her 2005 album Our Fall (mp3 stream @128kbps; requires Real Player):

More Great Aunt Ida can be found on New Music Canada...
