North Lakes – Grand Prix (Independent)

Hailing from the little island to our east, Prince Edward Island’s North Lakes are here to shake things up. The group does a marvelous job doing away with pre-conceived notions that the Maritimes are nothing but a bunch of fiddlers. From the sounds of Grand Prix, the only history that North Lakes are familiar with is the energetic teachings of the MC5 combined with a more modern act like the Hives. It ultimately makes for a record that overflows with rock anthems for the disenchanted youth of today or for anyone who has a decent taste in music.
