Canada’s Best Of 2011

Monday, January 2nd, 2012

So it’s about that time (or maybe just past that time) that the blogosphere starts to spit out its slew of Top 5, 10, 25, 100, etc. albums of the last year. I haven’t been inclined to come up with a rigid numbered list in the last couple of years, but looking back on 2011, we’ve had some damn fine releases come from Canadian artists.

Some that’ve spent a lot of time in my personal rotation include Braids – Native Speaker, Rich Aucoin – We’re All Dying To Live, and Ohbijou – Metal Meets. It seemed like a slower year for metal, punk, and hip hop. (That’s not to say there weren’t great discs from those genres; simply that I think more significant releases have surfaced in previous years).

Anyhow, I’d love to hear some of your favourites from fellow canucks this past year. Share ’em in the replies!

    Dan Mangan’s album “Oh Fortune” is fantastic. Colin Stetson’s “New History Warfare Vol. 2: Judges”. Chad VanGaalen’s “Diaper Island”. “Kaputt” by Destroyer is one of Dan Bejar’s finest moments.
