I'm not sure I even listened to 20 albums during this shitty year, but fetch the bolt cutters is definitely A+ material

Didn't listen to that many new albums, but my absolute favourite was Songs by Adrianne Lenker.

Here's my favorite 5 albums of 2020 in no particular order!

Beabadoobee - Fake It Flowers
Sad bedroom guitar girl doing 90s style alt rock is 100% my shit


Hayley Williams - Petals For Armor

This is a beautiful album and Hayley sounds so much more authentic and real when not having to do Paramore music.


Stand Atlantic - Pink Elephant

The solid pop punk album that 16 year old me desperately needed, but damn if i'm not still gonna enjoy it now.


PVRIS - Use Me
This band has been on my radar for a while, but this album is like they fully developed their sound and aesthetic.


Fever 333 - Wrong Generation
Kind of a modern day Rage Against the Machine in some regards, not everyone's cup of tea. But worth checking out in my imo.


Honorable Mentions:

Kero Kero Bonito - Time 'N' Place
actually came out a few years ago but I only discovered it this year, and it's a really good album people shouldn't sleep on.


WARGASM (UK)
They haven't put out an album yet, but their singles kick ass, they quickly became one of my go-to lockdown bands between their new music and streams.


That time Doja Cat did a rocked out version of Say So at the EMAs

I mean, it's like someone downloaded this video directly from my brain.

Unhappy

Here are some things I liked a lot from this year. I won’t rank them. I don’t like ranking things. Here are some things anyway, in the order of my recollection:

MSC & The Body - I Don’t Ever Want to Be Alone
Midwife - Forever
Mamaleek - Come & See
Sightless Pit - Grave of a Dog
Phoebe Bridgers - Punisher
Cindy Lee - What’s Tonight to Eternity
Sprain - As Lost Through Collision
Gulch - Impenetrable Cerebral Fortress
Thou and Emma Ruth Rundle - May Our Chambers Be Full
The Microphones - Microphones in 2020
Hand Model - Manufactured Joy
Nothing - The Great Dismal
Freddie Gibbs & Alchemist - Alfredo
Westside Gunn - Pray for Paris
Duma - S/T
Uboa - The Flesh of the World
Haus Arafna - Asche
Soccer Mommy - color theory
Mary Lattimore - Silver Ladders
Oliver Coates - skins n slime
Anna von Hausswolff - All Thoughts Fly
NGHTCRWLR - Let the Children Scream
Vyva Melinkolya - Violet
Boris - NO
Sugar High - Love Addict

Honorable mentions:

Sumac - May You Be Held
Primitive Man - Immersion
Fiona Apple - Fetch the Bolt Cutters
Neptunian Maximalism - Eons
clipping. - Visions of Bodies Being Burned

Things I haven’t got to yet but seem more likely than not to make the list eventually:

William Basinski - Lamentations
Armand Hammer - Shrines
Sadness - Alluring the Distant Eye
Ka - Descendants of Cain
Liturgy - Origin of the Alimonies
Black to Comm - Oocyte Oil & Stolen Androgens

Hors concours:

The Body - I’ve Seen All I Need to See. A 2021 release that shipped early, this was the most exciting new record I heard this year

The new Black Wing record was kinda cool but I don’t know. I can’t seem to get into it as much as other people are

Maybe someday I’ll get to listen to that Mach Hommy record. I like his music a lot but I really find this whole $444 for a record business obnoxious
