As I do every year, I've made a list of my favourite local albums of 2023. Did I miss albums? Absolutely. Did I immediately question my judgement after I finished narrowing it down to 20? Yuppers. But for good or ill, there are 20 releases by local artists I want to highlight.
Continuing the tradition I began last year, I've recorded a series of episodes counting down the records on my list, including interview clips and songs.
This first installment covers albums I've unscientifically ranked from 20-15, which includes the EP by Bloc Parents, Big Deep Sigh by Tinge, Will Bonness' Is This A Dream?, NTHN4GRNTD by Len Bowen, Neighbour Andy's Wild One, and Exit Wounds by The Rules.
Stay tuned over the next few as we count down to #1!
