the year that never was


My favorite piece of music from 2020 -  released this year (on room40), but actually recorded in 1978. I wrote about it here, where it places #90 in Pitchfork's annual tally of tracks of the year. (The whole Echos + album by Beatriz Ferreyra is excellent).

My favorite piece actually recorded in 2020 (or thereabouts) was this: 

The "flipside" by Green Gartside is also excellent. (And if you've not heard the original "Tangled Man"...)  My thoughts from earlier in the year. 

What else? It was a strange year, to put it mildly, and perhaps unsurprisingly a meagre yield - even more so (less so?) than 2019. 

these also served:

Lo Five - TONIC + The Art of Living  

Bergsonist, "La Rave

The Avalanches - We Will Always Love You

Playboi Carti - Whole Lotta Red

Moon Wiring ClubThe Most Unusual Cat in the Village  (check out also the accompanying MWC mix Most Unusual Hour, hosted by WFMU)


from another time:

Foul Play - Origins
