2020 is gone… but not yet forgotten

Dumpster Fire
2020 may have been a dumpster fire, but it had its share of great Canadian music. Image: RexRoi3D (Etsy)

Although in many respects, 2020 is a year we’d like to forget, this week we take a look back and remember the music that got us through the past twelve months—because our favorite artists didn’t give up their craft, and because the new Canadian releases continued despite the challenges that 2020 threw at us all.

And so, today, on the first day of 2021, we’ll bring you some of the best tracks we played in 2020, all in one convenient, oh-so-satisfying playlist. We’ve got songs by artists including Camille Delean, Cedric Noel, Dad Sports, The Dirty Nil, Dizzy, Good Kid, Heaps, Jill Barber, JJ Wilde, Mise en Scene, Monowhales, NOBRO, NYSSA, Outer Rooms, Peach Pit, Pottery, Rich Aucoin, Sleepy Gonzales, Tim Baker, U.S. Girls, and The Zolas.

Join Justin the Canuck today at 4:30 PM Central on KOOP Radio, 91.7 FM in Austin, Texas and broadcasting to the world at!
