Here we go again! This time we are looking back to Canadian Indie albums of 2009. 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 2009 there may still be some new to you tracks.

We started with 2006 in March because I was hoping to make this a monthly playlist and there are 12 months in a year and 2006 was 12 years ago. I missed June by a few days so we shall see if I get back on track. The plan is to do a playlist about albums from 2009 this time and 2010 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.

2009 brought us great albums from Handsome Furs, Japandroids, Patrick Watson, Julie Fader, Two Hours Traffic, K-OS, K’NAAN and so many more. I find it hard to believe it has been 9 years since these albums came out but so it has. It’s a great trip back in time listening to tracks from them. I hope you enjoy the ride as much as I have!
