It’s Canada Day long weekend, which means a jaunt up to the cottage, barbecues, camping, or a big road trip. It also means music must be played, and the Weekend Showcase 4.25 edition is the place. This week’s mega-playlist is a doozy, featuring upbeat fair and some dark, titillating numbers. Artists and bands represent 11 countries, including: Australia, Canada, England, France, Germany, Mexico, New Zealand, Norway, Sweden, the United States, and Wales.

The playlist and tracklisting, as usual, follows the list of articles from the past week. The SoundCloud version 42 of the 43 songs (one is absent due to an outstanding issue with the streaming platform), although some may require a GO account. The Spotify playlist has 40 songs.

Enjoy the great music and discover music’s hidden gems. Happy weekend everyone!
