Favourite Canadian Albums of 2013

on 1:25 pm

So after presenting songs from CanadiansinPortugal’s favourite Canadian albums of 2013 on the CanadiansinPortugal Facebook page the last few weeks, here, as in previous years, are the albums, the artists and some links to album streams (if you’re interested and hopefully you will be) in the order of 1 to 20, as well as the favourite compilation / project album of the year.

Before getting into it though, let just say that out of the three years of putting this list together, this was the hardest year as far as picking out an overall favourite. Whatever the case, here it is:

2. Arcade Fire  Reflektor http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YPWrFHySSyo
13. Odd Years – Drawing Lines http://oddyears.bandcamp.com/album/drawing-lines
15. Shotgun Jimmie – Everything, Everything http://youvechangedrecords.bandcamp.com/album/everything-everything
16. Paul Langlois  Not Guilty (Not available for streaming anywhere online)

Compilations: Skydiggers – All of our Dreaming – Skydiggers Live, 1988, 2000 & 2012 (3 live performances); No. 1 Northern (cover album); She Comes in the Room (Skydigger songs covered by female performers); Angels (Christmas album).
