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"
