As we approach the end of 2020 we take a look back at some of our favourite music from this year. Luckily during these turbulent times some exceptional music has been made. Providing us a sonic place to escape, a place to reflect, or a place to dance.

Always on the search for the perfect meeting between pop and experimentalism, we found it this year in KiCk I, made by one of the most compelling and innovative artist on our planet right now, Arca. Other records that found this perfect balance was the artful and beautiful avant-garde songs from Eartheater, and the profound beauty of Lyra Pramuk’s Fountain.

Two of this century’s premier electronic musicians, Oneohtrix Point Never and Actress, created records that were both uniquely their own while inviting other artists into their sonic universe. Meanwhile, pioneering musician Richard H. Kirk came out of the shadows, with the first Cabaret Voltaire album since 1994.

The aftershocks of the London Jazz earthquake could still be felt in the collection of musical sketches and abstract songcraft of Duval Timothy’s Help, and in the eccentric bric-a-brac of Bristol’s Tara Clerkin Trio.

Two records of this year that could not be further apart were by K-Lone and Speaker Music. Black Nationalist Sonic Weaponry was a sonic response to the past and present events unfolding, creating a record which whilst difficult to listen to, was a crucial audio document of its time. Cape Cira on the other hand created an oasis for us to seek refuge in, and forget what was happening around the globe.

For some, music can be a way to escape our reality and to turn on, tune in and drop out, but for others, it is a medium to provoke, educate, and turn up. Whatever you need from your listening experience, we hope that you can find something in these Top 10 Albums to fill you up.
