"Charlie's (Is Coming Down)" by The Deep Dark Woods || https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rO_pjC0bw5I || [Canadian] A soft, chill folk rock tune by a Canadian band that I listen to when I need to relax. A little melancholy, but cozy with a very warm sound. Always reminds me of a late summer evening.

[Canada] Ennis Sisters - Out From St Leonards // Kind of folksy this bit of of Cancon had been rattling around in my head it's from the 90s I recently refound it. Haunting harmony about the real forced resettlement of small fishing towns back in the 60s. I love the harmony and folksy feel https://youtu.be/KGR4Stlas7s

"Realize" - Nami Tamaki | https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y6PHJQfOpTU | [JP] In my heart, I know this isn't amazing music, or breaking any new ground, but it is super nostalgic for me and was my intro to J-Pop almost 20 years ago

Indians - I Am Haunted [3:28]. Indians is the moniker of Danish solo artist Søren Løkke Juul. This song very much hits my folky nerves in a good way but there's also a very ethereal feel to this song. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vFCkmyMVZQ0

Emeral Sword - Rhapsody of Fire https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AiOs7nNbPWU If you're not familiar with Power Metal, imagine if Iron Maiden got reaaally into DnD. This is one of the more radio friendly accessible songs they've put out. They've worked with Christopher Lee on occasion, too

Un musicien parmi tant d'autres - Harmonium - One of Quebec's marquee 70's band, Harmonium is folk/prog rock. Their 3 albums got more and more proggy, but this is from their first, so as to fit under the time limit.

"Birthday" by Sugarcubes (Icelandic dream-pop) - https://youtu.be/58bAgVSYV1E - one of my absolute favourite vocal performances from a very young Björk in her first(?) band before she went solo. She's only in her early 20s here but her range and raw power is thrilling!

Frederic - Oddloop https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PCp2iXA1uLE A super quirky, bubbly J-rock track about the importance of dancing! Also, at one point the singer pretends to make a castanet sound, which is very good
