To say that Basia Bulat‘s Tall Tall Shadow was a big part of Secret City’s year is an understatement. We’re really proud of Basia and this release, and as the year winds down are happy to see that we’re not the only ones. The Huffington Post named Tall Tall Shadow the Canadian album of the year, besting some pretty big names including Arcade Fire and Drake, and calling it “a masterwork from a woman ready for prime-time.” We couldn’t agree more. Exclaim! has the album in the #4 slot in their Top 10 Folk albums of the year. And in case for some reason you don’t follow Bob Odenkirk on Twitter, it’s also his favourite album of the year. Good call, Saul.
