2020 has been a wild year for nearly everyone. Luckily, there’s been no shortage of amazing music to help us get through it all. There’ve been some special albums released this year, and I’m sure they’ll be regarded as even more special in years to come as they’ll likely remind listeners of this insane year.  Without further ado, here are my 15 favorite albums of the year, in no particular order.

  1. Bartees Strange – “Live Forever”
  2. Shy Boys – “Talk Loud” 
  3. Brigid Dawson & The Mothers Network – “Ballet of Apes”
