Our Twenty for 2020

We’ve listened to a veritable ton of music this year: some great, some less so. All those hours have been distilled into our Twenty for 2020. There are probably another 50 we could have chosen, but these are the ones that floated our boat in 2020.

Latest new releases

We kick off the best of 22 January with Under A Mediterranean Sky, the first new acoustic solo album from legendary guitarist Steve Hackett since 2008, which melds the grandiosity of his recent solo electric records with a stunning breadth of approach to acoustic guitar, reminding us why Steve is such a revered and respected musician. The Wide, Wide River came into being through the friendship between James Yorkston and Karl-Jonas Winqvist of The Second Hand Orchestra, and is is Yorkston’s tenth album for Domino, not to mention his three albums as part of Yorkston/Thorne/Khan and his two books. The Hope List is brimming with Lonely The Brave’s trademark purity and passion, as well as a newfound sense of confidence that weaves its way through – a signal that the band aren’t just back, but back with renewed purpose and energy. Continuing to push their creative boundaries, even during lockdown, Bring Me The Horizon have created Post Human: Survival Horror, a body of work that is arguably one of their most exciting, diverse, intricate pieces of music to date, featuring Yungblud, Babymetal, Nova Twins and Amy Lee from Evanescence. And Brighter Days Ahead came about when Colemine Records had to close their shop in March. To keep things going during the pandemic, the label started releasing individual tracks from different artists on a weekly basis, and this album features the best of them.

Our release of the week is Belfast-born, London-based duo Bicep’s hotly anticipated second album, Isles, which expands on the artful energy of their 2018 debut, Bicep, while digging deeper into the sounds, experiences and emotions that have influenced their lives and work.

Starting the new year as we mean to go on, here’s our selection from 15 January’s releases. It’s hard at times to believe that Drunk Tank Pink is by the same band who made 2018’s Songs Of Praise, such is the jump Shame have made from the riotous post-punk of their debut to the sprawling adventurism and twitching anxieties laid out here. The five songs on Kurt Vile’s Speed, Sound, Lonely KV EP were recorded and mixed in sporadic sessions over four years, and feature what KV has called “probably the single most special musical moment in my life”: a duet with the late John Prine on the songwriter’s well-loved tune, ‘How Lucky’. We Come from The Sun was composed by Cerys Matthews with Hidden Orchestra and features 10 UK poets: MA.MOYO, Raymond Antrobus, Lemn Sissay, Liz Berry, Anthony Anaxagorou, Adam Horovitz, Cia Mangat, Imtiaz Dharker, Kim Moore and Kayo Chingonyi, and follows the theme of genesis, birth, heritage, and a journey about to begin. Big Thief guitarist Buck Meek’s new solo album, Two Saviors, is a cathartic, naked confession of heartbreak, resiliency, and enchantment. The first word on the album, ‘pareidolia’ – recognising shapes where none were intended to exist, like searching for images in the clouds – serves as an apt guide through these new songs. At the beginning of the lockdown Jeff Tweedy started writing country songs to console himself, Love Is The King was recorded in April 2020, surrounded by an assemblage of treasured instruments and loved ones in a world that felt more and more alien by the day.

Our release of the week comes from Nottingham’s own Sleaford Mods, who continue to kick against the pricks with unrivalled bite and humour. Spare Ribs finds the duo charged with ire at the UK Government’s sense of entitlement, epitomised by its devil-may-care approach to the coronavirus crisis.
