Your favorite music albums in 2020?


Any genre and suggest how many you want, as long as itís from 2020.

Bonus points if itís from indie artist(s)!

Iím really into darksynth/retrowave, so hereís three of my heavy rotations from this year of 2020:

Mirror by Dimitri De Alencar - dark synth, heavy, ďWall Street HyenasĒ is fantastic!

Virtuaverse.ost by MBR - another dark synth album that could well be a soundtrack for a cyberpunk game!

Electric Heart by Roxi Drive - a great Retrowave album from a great singer!

Slightly off- and on-topic:

I can't contribute a piece of music from 2020 (my favorites are Rimsky-Korsakov's Scheherazade and the Airplane's White Rabbit, both of which are well out of the time parameters as defined), but, for those who like indie music, Bob Cesca does an "Indie Music Countdown" podcast more or less monthly.

All the music he includes is contributed by the artists directly. He is very careful not to do music without the artists' permission.

Firstly a shout out to dugan re: Dylan. He does still often have "that something" that made him great in the beginning.

Secondly pretty cool idea for a thread, soo. I'm old and Old Skool but I'm also a musician so I do try to keep up and there is some stuff from 2020 that I like but much of it is a new twist on an old theme, but then that's what Indie is largely about, right?... taking a leap from where others left off? Pop Music is formula, even moreso now, and almost always just bores me to death. I like some avant garde, but only in small doses. To borrow a phrase from another old skool guy, "I want to please my mind, as well as my time".

I don't listen to a lot of albums anymore though I have bought a few by Black Keys somewhat recently, but here are a few artists active in 2020 that have me checking out what else they've got going

Black Pumas

Son Little

Leon Bridges

Would be nice if people wouldn't post walled garden links. I couldn't listen to anything from post #1.

I don't much care for the exact year music has been produced, but here are some recent favorites from bagel radio:
Fontaines D.C. - A Hero's Death
Fontaines D.C. - Liberty Belle
Pagiins - Hidden In The Dust
The Mango Furs - Bones
