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.
