Editors’ Top Picks – CMW 2015

We dug through hundreds of artists on the CMW 2015 bill, listened to as much a human possibly can, and compiled a list of the top 20 artists to see at this year’s Canadian Music Week. It goes anywhere from grunge/psych/punk/rock bands that grab your brains by the hands and fuck it, to outstanding hiphop acts who are actually from Canada, to sultry soul/rnb/pop/electronic artists that endlessly intrigue, to a one woman jazz orchestra. This is a list of artists who roll a fresh dice on the table.
