As the year draws to a close, most media outlets will have Best of 2014 articles on everything from restaurants to music to movies et al.

So, in keeping with that idea, let’s do a few Best of 2014 posts here, too, starting with music.

My pick for Top New Album of the Year goes to Quebec musician Serge Fiori, former lead singer of legendary band Harmonium who released a solo album that has already won a few Canadian music awards.

What was your favourite new album in 2014?
