There’s been a helluva lot of time to listen to music this year. Can’t put my finger on why.
You’ve probably seen a bunch of year-end lists and Spotify Wrapped-s, and lord knows you’ll see a lot more. But I still feel like adding to that noise and letting you know what I’ve been digging. With the release of my debut album, I’ve gotten a decent amount of messages telling me how my album is getting folks through the year, season, pandemic, election… and those messages have made my days. So I’m listing a bunch of releases not with the prerequisite of “best of 2020,” but rather, music that’s helped ME get through lots of stuff this year. And I’m not just including releases from this year, I’m including other music I’ve dived into that was released before 2020 but still helped me tons. Below are two lists — important releases to me in 2020, and releases I plain ol’ liked a lot that happened to be on heavy rotation during 2020. I hope some of these can help you like they helped me, or heck, help you differently than they helped me. I just hope they help!
