Our Favorite Records of the Year

Our Favorite Records of the Year

2020 is coming to a close, and while there is much from this past year that we would rather not remember, we would have to say the opposite about this year's music.

As always, the music is what keeps as going—even more so now—so we'd like to take a moment to honor the amazing bands and artists from the world over who's music has been a constant source of refuge and inspiration for us this year.
