EP. 49: Best of 2020

The best of 2020. All the weird superlatives, all in one episode.

I spoke on my top 10 records on the Behind the Vinyl podcast,  so this playlist I discuss a multitude of favorites including best riffs, best dance rock, best anti political song, all that good stuff. Great year for new music, awful year for most other things. Last call for end of year fundy, support here! Let 2021 somewhat decent. Be well my friends <3
