Best Records of the Year 2020: 1-20

As promised yesterday, it's time to close the list of Best Records of 2020 with our Top 20. In a year of (worldwide) struggles, shortcomings, and forced introspection, music has had a balsamic effect. While listening the albums again in order to draft the list, we have seen sort of a trend (aside from a couple of exceptions and the Blog's trademark love for the Antipodean sounds) in the selection: an eerie, pensive, yet very warm vibe. Makes total sense. These are comforting, enduring songs against the uncertainty. Hope these are shared (or about to be) feelings with you all. So, enjoy the music and Happy 2021!

Best Records of the Year 2020: 40-21

Later than ever, we know... but December (more hospital visits) has been pretty hectic, somewhat fitting this surreal year, finally vanishing. Yet the time has arrived to unveil our Best Records of 2020! Like we did last year, we have maintained the number of 40 for the albums listed, splitting the post in two. The only difference being the inclusion of EPs within the list (as we haven't had a lot of them among our favourites this season). Therefore, here are our mandatory albums, "in charge of" our soundtrack in this excruciating 2020, starting with the LPs ranging from 40 to 21. A stunning harvest despite the times, really deserving a listen! And stay tuned, the Top 20 will be online tomorrow!

40. Lifetime of Comedy- The Parson Red Heads
39. Jetstream Pony- Jetstream Pony
38. Horse- Holy Motors
37. All This Talking Gets Us Nowhere- The Buoys
