Fair to say that Canada’s had more than its fair share of successful indie-rock exports over the last few years, with the likes of [mp3com-artist]Arcade Fire[/mp3com-artist], [mp3com-artist]The New Pornographers[/mp3com-artist] and [mp3com-artist]Broken Social Scene[/mp3com-artist] waving the red and white at shows around the world.
