It’s been a crazy year, and a depressing year, so perhaps we all retreated more into our record collections to seek out that fleeting joy. On my end, I spent a lot of time running/walking in the ‘burbs, so these are the records that played the most in my life…thus they are my Favorite Albums of 2020. The validity means little to anyone other than myself, but since you stop by, perhaps come by and check out my list!
And, just an FYI…there are 30 bands, and I linked back to Bandcamp pages so you can buy directly from the artists…except that one band because apparently they’re too cool…even though that album rips.
I just simply don’t think its possible to listen to the work of Chloe Alison Escott and not be moved; you just can’t listen here and miss out on the natural drama of Escott’s writing. Merely piano and vocals on this tune from the Native Cats front woman, yet it just hits you in your core, something that speaks to the power of Chloe’s narration and vocal delivery. There’s a uniqueness too, something distinctive in her voice…the sort that leaves its scars on your eardrums as it courses into your brain. A striking elegance permeates this entire song, and for that matter, the whole of Stars Under Contract; the LP will offer up high brow pop art for the everyperson when it drops on October 16th via Chapter Music.
