eh to ZED vol. 1

by DOMINIONATED Staff

June 29, 2018

On a weekend that we are all encouraged to raucously celebrate Canada’s “birthday” with fireworks, face paint, overpriced beer, and some good ol’ fashioned unfiltered patriotism, it’s worth taking a sober step back to appreciate the absurdity of it all. The idea that being born within this sprawling 9.985 million km² area intrinsically connects so many across time and space is unendingly strange, but hey, that’s where we are.

Here at DOMINIONATED, we cover the music from across this 9.985 million-km² area because we are fascinated with how artists have spoken to, critiqued, and transcended the myths, ideas, and histories contained within its arbitrary borders. “Canada” may be just an idea, but that doesn’t mean it’s not an idea worth exploring.

With that, we give you an “Eh to Zed” list of albums that celebrate and recognize the wealth of artistry that Canada has to offer. It’s the best way we know how to ring in the big 1-5-1.
