This week we are taking a trip back in time to Canadian Indie albums of 2007. Our playlists mostly focus on what is new but I thought it would be fun to check back to music we were listening to in the past. For those of you that were listening to CBC R3 back in the old days, many tracks will be familiar. There are a lot of tracks that might not be as familiar but the artist playing them is because it was from an earlier album before you became aware of them. So while it is a look back at 2007 there may still be some new to you tracks.
I chose 2006 last month because I am hoping to make this a monthly playlist and there are 12 months in a year and 2006 was 12 years ago. The plan is to do a playlist about albums from 2007 this month and 2008 next month, etc for the next year and then see how it goes from there. It can be fun to check back and see what music we still love and what music we once loved but have moved on from and to find out what we missed. I made a YouTube playlist that you can find below, with most of the same songs that are on the Spotify playlist but I didn’t find all of them.
2007 was a great year in music with albums from Holy Fuck, Wintersleep, Arcade Fire, Stars, The New Pornographers, Hey Rosetta!, Mother Mother, and so many more. It was a year of great discovery for me personally and my love for Canadian Indie music was really growing that year. I hope you enjoy the trip down memory lane.
