Everything's better in Canada, right? Including and especially its music, at least in recent years. (I'm being facetious, for the record. Mostly.) But Jets Overhead is one shining example of the country's solid exports. The band's sophomore effort, No Nations, recently came out on Vapor Records -- you know, Neil Young's label and one-time home of Tegan & Sara, among others -- and it's a sincere, no-frills collection of folk-leaning indie-rock that fits moments when solitude is perfection. RIYL Sam Roberts, Doves, Radiohead.
To celebrate, A to Z has an autographed copy of the band's album, No Nations, and a size small American Apparel black T-shirt with the album's cool cubed logo to give away. To enter, leave a comment with your full name and email and your favorite Canadian band -- and why! The contest ends next Wednesday, September 9, at noon. One winner will get the loot. Happy winning!
