It is the time that I reveal the Top 10 Canadian and Non-Canadian albums in radio/podcast form!
Here is the Best of 2020 Edition of No Filter – Home Edition on CHUO 89.1 FM.
Giving props to Hiroki Tanaka and Pantayo to be in the Top 10 since 2020 has seen a lot of Asian acts releasing stellar albums.
Cindy Lee’s What’s Tonight To Eternity caught my ears and it is a mix of haunting and retro pop music.
Decided to pick U.S. Girls as the best Canadian album is because the album resonated with me and I loved hear the reworkings of three old songs.
Very last minute to add The Avalanches in the Top 10 but it was one those concept albums that is long forgotten in recent years.
Decided to pick Sault’s two albums as the best Non-Canadian because it is a powerful album that helped described 2020 with the pandemic and political uprise of Black Lives Matters.
I could have put Fiona Apple as #1 but Sault stood out the most.
Hope you enjoyed the Top 10 list of 2020.
Let’s make 2021 a better year!
See you next year!
