Highlight Of The Year

Although live music was devastatingly non-existent for most of 2020, there was an abundance of great albums and singles to be found - Rolling Blackouts CF's release was better than their first (and their first was great) while 40 years old Brian Christinzio of BC Camplight proved MIDDLE AGE IS WHERE YOU PEAK.

Prediction For Next Year

UK band Shame's Water In The Well was a great song, video and way to end a shitty fucking year, and their new album will top best albums lists in 2021. Until then, look after yourself and your neighbour.
