What We Loved in 2017 (Not Released in 2017)

2017 was an outstanding year for music, as our annual Favourite Fifty Albums list attests. Not all of our attention focused on newly released music, though, so our year-end look back doesn’t feel complete without recognizing excellent Canadian music from the past that we either discovered or spent time revisiting this year. As we did last year, here’s DOMINIONATED’s favourite non-2017 Canadian records that soundtracked our year.

From all of us to all of you and yours, the very best this holiday season, and see you back here for more #CanadianMusicConversations in 2018.
