CJAM TOP 30 & SPECIALTY CHARTS // December 7 – 13, 2020

After a couple weeks at #2, Partner has taken the #1 spot in our charts with their new (and quite frankly, amazing) album, Never Give Up. Khruangbin‘s mix album, the latest in the Late Night Stories series was #2. Self-Cut Bangs returns to the podium at #3 this week. The latest Pack AD Live EP falls in at #4. And Windsor’s own, Huttch, falls from #1 to round out the top 5… at #5.

The latest from Jeff Tweedy topped our Folk charts. Thou‘s cover album, A Primer of Holy Words, topped the Loud charts (with their collab album with Emma Ruth Rundle not far behind). And Toronto’s Griffith Hiltz Trio was #1 in Jazz with a fun lil nostalgia trip of an album, Arcade.
