Aquarium Drunkard :: 2020 Year In Review

Every year Aquarium Drunkard’s year-end list is the biggest source of music for me. The list is always a careful mix of heavy hitting indie, obscure textures, and exciting deep cuts and reissues. This year’s list appears to be no exception. As usual, I assembled a “long form” Spotify playlist, containing every track from every album in the list, to go along with the “official” abbreviated playlist:

Also, as usual, there’s a small set of albums that aren’t included because they are not available on Spotify:

  • Ned Lagin – Seastones
  • Neil Young – Archives Vol. 2
  • Richard & Linda Thompson – Hard Luck Stories
  • Brother Theotis Taylor – Brother Theotis Taylor
  • Microphones in 2020
  • Sunn Trio – Electric Esoterica
  • Joe McPhee – Black Is The Color: Live in Poughkeepsie and New Windsor, 1969-70
  • Matthew ‘Doc’ Dunn – Rain, Rain, Rain
  • Robbie Basho – Songs of the Great Mystery
  • Rich Ruth – Where There’s Life Vol. 1-6
  • Sarah Louise – Earth and Its Contents
  • Tuluum Shimmering – Sister Ray Meets China Cat Sunflower Uptown
  • The Harry Smith B-Sides
  • Daniel Hecht – Guitar
  • Boris – NO
