Although 2020 has felt like one bummer after another, it’s been pretty solid on the new music front. Even with cancelled or postponed shows, and many others trapped in some weird zoom universe, that isolation has bore delicious fruit. It’s created conditions where I’ve stumbled onto new artists, new singles and albums that might have otherwise eluded me. These twelve tracks represent a handful of favorites.
