Free Kick's 2013 Round-up

Free Kick is a weekly free-form radio show broadcast on CKUT 90.3 from Montreal every Sunday at 11am-1pm eastern time; or alternatively, subscribe to the podcast - all links at the bottom of this post.  Here is a shared top 10 of 2013 from hosts Swan and Dave.


True to the format of the show, each of us came up with a separate list of 5 Canadian releases that became favourites in 2013. A fair number were released in late 2012 but got most of their play in 2013. Items are listed in no particular order.
