Take the Great Bloomers. Mix in some Forest City Lovers. Maybe a dash of Ohbijou and a little Kathleen Edwards, too. Somewhere, there, you have one of the best new bands coming out of Toronto, Little City: the perfect blend of upbeat folk-pop.

Find out more about the band (and check out some of their tracks) over at littlecityband.com. Oh, and fun fact: 2004 (season 2) Canadian Idol winner Kalan Porter occasionally adds his violin skills to the band… and did so in the studio today. Pretty gosh-darn-cool. Don’t forget to check out their show tonight at the Cajun Attic and if you’re in Toronto on Saturday, ’tis the day of their official album release — happening at the Bread and Circus in Kensington Market.
Tune in next week when we spin some more awesomeness, including a very special Weekly Import — an interview with New Jersey’s Titus Andronicus.
