Top 50 of 2016: Part 1 (50-41)

It’s been quite a rollercoaster ride for 2016. Although there have been many (a few too many) downfalls this year in a variety of ways, and loss was high this year, there was still a lot to be thankful for and excited about from the past twelve months. The music world gained quite a collection of fantastic albums this year – hip-hop, electronic, rock, folk, and more have taken over this year’s Top 50 list and are cozying up to being some of my favourite albums of all-time.

In No Particular Order: September 16, 2016

Remember as a kid when you were given some candy (not from a stranger), and you’d rush home, but by the end of the day, your stash would be gone – even though your parents always told you to save some for later? You’d have a bunch of delicious, sugary goodness within your grasp, all at once, and depending on how abundant this candy collection was, you’d be overwhelmed with the sudden influx of sugar (what’s “self-control”?).

Paper Lions – Believer

Charlottetown, P.E.I. indie pop band Paper Lions have been relatively quiet in the past few years; their last album My Friends was released in 2013, and since then the homegrown four-piece have been touring and working on a new album. Two years later, Paper Lions have announced they will be releasing a new album sometime in 2016, and in anticipation of the new record, they have shared their latest single “Believer”. Stepping forward with excitement in stride, their new track showcases the band’s dance-pop abilities for a vibrant, Arkells-meets-Two Door Cinema Club…
