BEST OF 2021

BENSCORZ! 🇨🇦

(Radio DJ/Contributor)

Ben joined our CGCM team during 2021 bringing his MixFix With BenSCORZ! show to our radio airwaves. A fun and entertaining show packed with great music and knowledge. Here’s his best albums of 2021 list.

THE NIGHT FLIGHT ORCHESTRA 🇸🇪

Aeromantic II

Although not too consistent for me, two tracks absolutely blew me away and each got 5 stars outta five. “Chardonnay Nights” and “White Jeans” put the Night Flight Orchestra on my radar for future releases.

DANGEROUS CURVES 🇦🇺

Summertime Highs

Another pleasant surprise from a band I’d never heard of before. It too was consistent and easy to just let play. “Good and the Bad” is my favourite track.

TEMPLE BALLS 🇫🇮

Pyromide

It was the simplicity and catchy songwriting and riffs that kept my attention on this LP. It was a consistent album I did not skip over any tracks from. “Bad Bad Bad” is my favourite track.
