Top Plays, August 2020

Posted by

And just like that … we bid adieu to the warm and physically-distanced days of Summer 2020. It might have been the strangest summer of our lives, with a severe lack of live music events … but our Top 30 from August just goes to show musicians haven’t let a global pandemic stop them. There have been a ton of great releases over the last few months, and we’re stoked to see so many fantastic local and Canadian musicians getting lots of love on the airwaves. Don’t forget to support all these albums by purchasing them on Bandcamp, or wherever you buy music! Click the links and buy away! Until September …
