We are halfway through the year 2020! Only halfway, you say? Yes! But all things considered, there has been some good music from this wreck of a year. Here’s a list of 20 songs I love from 2020.
If there’s a song that you think belongs on this list, let me know in the comments.
“Anyone Can Play Guitar” by Midwife
“Be” by Mourning [A] BLKstar
(look forward to a full review of the band’s album The Cycle in the coming weeks).
“Clean Kill” by Coriky
“Finally // beautiful stranger” by Halsey
“Is There Something in the Movies” by Samia
“Mansplain” by Thick
“Never (Lagos Never Gonna Be The Same)” by Tony Allen and Hugh Masekela
(also read my full-album review for Rejoice)
“Take What You Can Carry” by Mia Doi Todd
“walking in the snow” by Run the Jewels
(also read my full album review of RTJ4)
A couple of weeks ago I posted a list of albums released in 2020 that had been recommended to me from various sources. I’ve listened to them all, and starting next week I will begin posting full album reviews. Today, though, I’m going to post a few songs I liked from albums that didn’t make the cut for an album review. Kind of like a Monthly Mixtape, but kind of not.
In the meantime, if you have any albums or songs or EPs or rock operas or anything else from 2020 you think I should listen to, let me know in the comments.
