CJAM TOP 30 & SPECIALTY CHARTS // November 22 – 29, 2020

Huttch‘s new EP, Quick Fix has attacked and dethroned CJAM’s compilation, Live Off the Floor – which had been at the top of our charts since it was released back in October. Toronto’s Partner came in an extremely close #2. Calgary’s CJSW released their own compilation (Vital Signs: Live Sessions from CJSW 90.9FM) of live records of Calgary artists that reached #8 on the charts this week. London, ON artists Monarch and Dangersex have taken #1 spots on our electronic and loud charts respectively. And Vancouver’s Dan Mangan‘s new cover album tops our Folk charts this week. It’s been a very Cancon week here at CJAM – just doing our patriotic duty!

CJAM TOP 30 & SPECIALTY CHARTS // November 16 – 22, 2020

CJAM favorites Self-Cut Bangs are the most recent challenger to CJAM: Live Off The Floor‘s domination of our weekly top 30 chart. Like all those who came before it, they were ultimately defeated in what can only be described as… one release having slightly more plays than the other?

Anyways, I’m putting the Self-Cut Bangs album cover because it’s well deserved (and the news page having the same album cover over and over and over is an aesthetic nightmare)
