Is Canada the new flannel?

What is it about Canadian bands? Is there something in the water? Must be all the free health care. The Rest hail from Hamilton, Ontario. Their sound is quite exquisite, and really something to be marveled at. Canadian musician generalization #2: Are there any brooding kids in Canada that sit alone in their rooms and have a hard time making friends or finding fellow musicians? Are there dumb posts in the Recycler in Canada that have to explain that their influences are "Later Beatles and 'Loveless' My Bloody Valentine"? Every great Canadian band seems to have numerous band members! Check out two tracks from a wonderful band called The Rest.
