In a year marked by a pandemic, politics, and racial unrest, music was a great salve. As is often the case, my favorites were released early in the year allowing me the time to fully digest the music, especially during the March/April early-Covid lockdown. Nada Surf in February and Waxahatchee in March held my top two spots and earned the most spins in my house this year. Whatever your favorites, I hope you found at least a little solace in the music of 2020.
