By Apartment613 on December 31, 2021

This is Pt. 5 in a series. Listen to more “Best Of 2021” playlists here.

In early 2020, music writers launched #ottmusic weekly to promote new releases by Ottawa-Gatineau artists. It’s basically our “release radar” for locally-made music. The Spotify playlist is a updated every weekend and published on Mondays.

All in all, the team curated more than 240 songs for #ottmusic weekly in 2021, and in this final week of 2021 we’re thrilled to share Apt613’s top choices in five “Best Of” playlists. You’re digging into Pt. 5 of this series. Listen to more “Best Of 2021” playlists here.
