Multis E Gentibus Vires: A Vintage Saskatchewan Mixtape


Dig into an all-vinyl helping from one of Canada’s overlooked and underappreciated provinces. Rural rock with guitars informed by six months of winter. Prairie Lily ladies and god-fearing men. 800 pounds of country rock from a trio of CFL players. A paean to a Métis folk hero. And Howard. Welcome to Saskatchewan.
