Records from yesteryear that soundtracked our 2018.

Though we spend a great deal of our time and energy focusing on new music during the year, compiling lists of favourite records and playlists of awesome songs, in 2018, we tried our best not to neglect great Canadian music of years past. Beyond the albums we’ve already profiled, there’s a slew of music that rocked us this year that originated in years past. As has become a tradition, the following is DOMINIONATED’s collective favourite non-2018 Canadian records either newly discovered or revisited.
