It’s December and that means that the never ending isolation induced nightmare of 2020 is finally coming to an end. And with the end of the year comes my semi-annual list of releases I enjoyed in 2020. These albums were the salve to my unending boredom and the bulwark to the infectious disease specter looming over everything. If music wasn’t what you needed this year, then I hope you found something else to ease your troubles.
Anyway, listen through the releases below. If you like something click through and buy it from Bandcamp. If you’re not a music buyer (shame on you) then I’ve compiled the releases into an easy-to-stream Spotify playlist.
