The National Top 200 of 2020


1 Andy Shauf Andy Shauf Can Con
Neon Skyline - (Arts & Crafts)
http://www.andyshauf.com/ Band Website @AndyShauf |

After the success of his Juno-nominated 2016 record, The Party, Andy Shauf returned in 2020 with another concept album that takes place during a single evening - this time choosing to write, perform, arrange, and produce it entirely himself.
Shauf is a gifted songwriter, and the lyrics for The Neon Skyline read like a mesmerizing short story set to dreamy folk-pop. We see the main character as he meets up with friends for a drink, and we catch amusing snippets of their conversations until he drifts off to some fond and not-so-fond memories of an ex before running right into her at the bar. The music, along with Shauf’s vocals, is often so light and sweet, even catchy, while the words are heavy with melancholy and nostalgia. This clever contrast between uplifting and heart-wrenching makes for an entertaining listen, and is likely one of the reasons for The Neon Skyline’s eight consecutive weeks at #1 in the !earshot Top 50.

2 Lido Pimienta Lido Pimienta Can Con
Miss Colombia - (Anti-)
https://lidopimienta.com/ Band Website @LidoPimienta |

Lido Pimienta's masterpiece, Miss Columbia, finds the Toronto-based Afro/Indigenous/Colombian/Canadian musician and visual artist building on the "nu" intersection of electronica and cumbia established in her first two albums. Introspective and optimistic, complex, emotional, and powerfully original, Pimienta calls the album "a really good representation" of where she is now and where she's ready to go next.

Pimienta realized her vision for Miss Columbia with help from a global array of artists. Collaborators include Toronto musician Matt Smith - aka Prince Nifty, Afro-Columbian artisans Sexteto Tabala, Liliana Samuet, vocalist of the Colombian electro-vacilon band Bomba Estereo, Santiago de Chile's indie artist Andres Nusser, Halifax musician and producer Robert Drisdelle, Columbians Grupo De Danzas Kumbe and Raices de Palenque, Toronto's Road to Avonlea Choir, and many others.

Miss Columbia is up for a 2021 Grammy Award in the category of Best Latin Rock or Alternative Album. The winner will be announced on January 31st.

3  Wolf Parade Wolf Parade Can Con
Thin Mind - (Royal Mountain)
https://wolfparade.bandcamp.com/ Band Website @WolfParade |

Wolf Parade’s Thin Mind came out in January at the beginning of 2020. It seems like a lifetime ago before the pandemic struck and everything got strange. The title refers, according to keyboardist Spencer Krug, the way that pervasive technology changes the way we relate to the world, forcing a thin, shallow focus. Their fifth studio album harkens back to their early work even as the sound is more polished and the synths shine. And it is as exciting as ever.

Oddly enough, despite it’s high position on the Top 200, Thin Mind did not make to the number 1 position. I spent a long time just behind Andy Shauf’s  Neon Skyline and an even longer time hovering in the Top 5. There is more than one way to be a chart topper.

4  Zoon Zoon Can Con
Bleached Wavves - (Paper Bag)
https://zoongideewinmusic.bandcamp.com/ Band Website @zoongideewin |

Daniel Glen Monkman has described the swirling headtrip of sound on his debut album under the moniker Zoon (an abbreviation of the Ojibwe word Zoongide’ewin which means “bravery, courage, the Bear Spirit”) as "moccasin-gaze" - a nod to both his Indigenous heritage as well as the musical lineage that finds Bleached Wavves on a continuum downstream from the likes of Loveless and Souvlaki. 

The record is a true headtrip, perfect for a year in which shelter-in-place rules limited options for journeying and over the course of its ten songs, Monkman paints from an expansive sonic palette that still has a unified thrust to the material.

5  Caribou Caribou Can Con
Suddenly - (Merge)
http://www.caribou.fm/ Band Website @caribouband |

Suddenly, Dan Snaith’s fifth album as Caribou, feels like a logical next step in evolution for the Canadian songwriter and producer. For Caribou fans, the sound is familiar yet it clearly showcases an artist who continues to hone their craft. Although sample-heavy, hook-laden beats are still prominent along with woozy, pitch-bent melodies, Suddenly is somehow more restrained and straightforward than previous records. Snaith sings on almost every track this time and with more emotional vulnerability, and he is also accompanied by Toronto multi-instrumentalist Colin Fisher of Not the Wind, Not the Flag - but it is often the subtler, unexpected details that make this record stand out. Surprising combinations and fleeting shifts in genres, instruments, and textures create a pleasantly disorienting experience. The album, a deftly produced hybrid of styles and moods, spent 18 weeks in the National Top 50.

6  Tops Tops Can Con
I Feel Alive - (Musique TOPS)
http://www.tttopsss.com/ Band Website @TTTOPSSS |

This Montreal four piece released I feel Alive in early 2020 and it immediately hit the top of the charts.  No big surprise.  This band has been honing their velvety sound over the last 10 years.  Although, their lead vocalist experienced a major break up this album is anything but a sad sop break up record.  It is 1970’s smooth pop storytelling gold! Even a track titled “Ballads & Sad Movies” evades the usual tropes.  The lyricism and breathy vocals are like a shower of glitter over guitar riffs and sometimes lethargic synthesizers.

A perfect album to chill with.

7  Tough Age Tough Age Can Con
Which Way Am I? - (Mint)
http://tough-age.bandcamp.com Band Website @toughage |

I can scarcely believe I am writing about ANOTHER album with flute and a singer named Penny? LOL Vancouver based Tough Age return with their 4th album. Definitely not like their previous albums, Tough Age continues to grow and explore but never disappoint.  You’ll get your fix of high energy frenetic rock tunes you’ve come to love and then slide effortlessly into a more pensive pace.  I felt this album reflect the year -  the initial frenzy of a global pandemic and the slowing down of the world’s pace.  A great listen any time of day.

8  U.S. Girls U.S. Girls Can Con
Heavy Light - (Royal Mountain)
http://yousgirls.blogspot.ca/ Band Website @YouSGirls |

Meg Remy’s  7th album under the moniker US Girls, delivered her unmistakable vocal stylings, a slightly paired down sound with all the power and emotion we have grown to adore from this Toronto-based experimental pop artist.  

I cannot deny that I am a fan of US Girls and dove head first into this post-rage sea of songs.

And I am not alone, Heavy Light was met with critical acclaim when it was released in March 2020.  You’ll find soul, pop, disco and some 1960’s sounds to move you as you contemplate the heavy narratives of personal reflection - what’s not to love?

By Erin Flynn

U.S. Girls is the musical project of Chicago-born Torontonian Meghan Remy. The title, Heavy Light, inspired by Franz Kafka’s aphorism, “faith like an axe. As heavy, as light”, is Remy’s seventh studio album, co-written with Basia Bulat and Rich Morel and recorded in Montreal’s acclaimed Hotel 2 Tango studio. The album features a grand cast of 20 session musicians, including Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band saxophonist Jake Clemons. It was mixed by Maximilian ‘Twig’ Turnbull, Steve Chahley, and Tony Price.

Heavy Light is about trauma, collective and personal, expressed within an exuberant modern pop music aesthetic heavy on orchestral percussion and vocals. Remy’s clear-eyed lyrics, such as “you gotta have boots/If you wanna lift those bootstraps” on  album opener, "4 American Dollars", deserve an extra close listen.
