This was a good but kinda strange feeling year for new music. Here's what I guess would be my top 20 releases of 2020. The list is not in any well thought out order, but the ten at the top I feel are the ten best.

Pearl Jam - Gigaton
Vennart - In the Dead Dead Wood
Animal Collective - Bridge to Quiet
Jónsi - Shiver
Jeff Parker - Suite for Max Brown
Patten - GLOW
Markus Floats - Third Album
Deerhoof - Future Teenage Cave Artists
McLaren - Hard Times
The Dwarfs of East Agouza - The Green Dogs of Dahshur
Inventions - Continuous Portrait
Nick Storring - My Magic Dreams Have Lost Their Spell
Dun-Dun Man - P​-​-​>a​-​-​>n​-​-​>d​-​-​>e​-​-​>m​-​-​>o​-​-​>s 1​-​-​>10
Dun-Dun Man - S​-​-​>o​-​-​>m​-​-​>e​-​-​>N​-​-​>a​-​-​>p (P​-​-​>a​-​-​>n​-​-​>d​-​-​>e​-​-​>m​-​-​>o​-​-​>s 11​-​-​>20)
Ryan Driver - New Twigs
Karkhana - Bitter Balls
Automatisme - Terrain Reduction
Rebecca Foon - Waxing Moon
See Through 4 - False Ghosts, Minor Fears

I guess this would be a bad time to admit that I use copy and paste any time I want to write out those titles.

I would refuse out of spite, and just call them A and B. Those are terrible titles

The titles are references to the way he titles tracks for this project. "10-->11-->13-->15-->17-->19-->19-->10-->10-->10-->10-->10-->10-->10-->17-->17-->17-->17-->9" is an example from the first demo set. I think each one is supposed to be some kind of arcane reference to the rhythmic structure of the piece. He has started subtitling them with actual legible names on the second set (as well as a few on the first).

Gave some a listen. Will keep working my way through it. Couldn't find Dun-Dun Man on Spotify, will take a peek at Bandcamp.
Jónsi is pretty interesting. A touch too fragmented for me. It makes me wonder how Fiona Apple didn't make your list.
Jeff Parker was pretty great. Last track Max Brown is sweet.
patten seems like soundtrack music for dark, suspenseful movies. Do you like the Trent Reznor/Atticus Ross soundtrack work?
The Dwarfs of East Agouza, way too fragmented for me.
Karkhana has some interesting bits. I like parts of it and then it will get a little too unstructured and then back to my comfort zone. A minute into Rock Farock and I am just grooving.
Automatisme, I can see the appeal. Music to let your brain float to, not in a drug way but pondering shit way.

Thanks for jotting down some of your thoughts. Dun-Dun stuff would be on Bandcamp, yes. I can get some links your way if for some reason they don't come up for you.

I've not actually gotten a chance to check the Fiona Apple album out. I'm not familiar with her outside of a few songs, and I've heard a couple from the new album, but nothing that's pulled my attention in yet. Ditto Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross. I'm aware they've made soundtracks together, but I don't think I've heard a thing from any of that material.

One more jazz album (sorry) sliding onto my 2020 list -- Oded Tzur's Here Be Dragons, a beautiful, late-night album that in places feels so frail it might blow away, dating all the way back to the beginning of the year when we were all standing less than six feet apart from each other and cavalierly going to the grocery store not dressed like Ninja Gaiden. What glorious days.


Jazz on the ECM label has probably been my most prominent soundtrack this year, for 2020 releases and otherwise. Lots of stuff on this label just scratches me right where I itch.

This is fantastic. Thanks for drawing attention to it.

Listening to the new Future Islands and it's really underwhelming. Feels like an autopilot version of their good albums.

It Is What It Is is one of those records that keeps on giving. Constantly finding new things to enjoy. Songs that didn't grab me for weeks all of a sudden become my favorite.
