Lets face it: listening new music wasnt exactly easy this year. Amidst neverending whirlwind of 2020, it was tempting to crawl into cocoon of nostalgic favorites and never come out. But best albums of 2020 prove that incredible new music will always make their way to our ears, even in toughest of times. From albums years and years in making to those recorded during quarantine-induced bursts of creativity, here are 50 releases that make 2020 little better. Check out all of Pitchforks wrap-up coverage here. Bailey Sisters Have Quietly Lost Some Of Wide-eyedness Of Past And Instead Turn Towards Flotsam And Jetsam Of Twentysomething Life. Ungodly Hour is collection of low-key tracks that demonstrate true mastery of their intricate harmonies over slinky, charismatic production. It makes sense that album gives them their biggest hit, highly boppable Do It. While it felt like duo shot up overnight and out of sight, their rise parallels way world has been living this year: inward and on insomniac circadian rhythm. Hopefully, like Chloe x Halle, we will reemerge into real world, elegantly transformed by what happen in wee hours of morning.-Allison P. Davis

Arca: KiCk i

Nonbinary, opening track on Arca's fourth studio album KiCK I, is delectable declaration of her new gender expression. This is Venezeluan producers most accessible record yet, featuring superstar Bjork and Spanish pop sensation ROSALIA, but there are no signs of compromise here. Having come out as Non-binary in 2018, Arca has since transition and Nonbinary is self-affirming infectious pop track with tongue-tying whisper lyrics-its French tips wrap around dick-while its saccharine third verse exemplifies her bold new self. With memorable beat full of sporadic gunshots and hollow-out syncopate drums, warp on loop, she concludes her most contentious and catchiest song to date with lyrics: What treat / It is to be / Non-binary / Ma ch e rie / Tee-hee-hee / Bitch. Arcas carefully control cacophonies stand on fringes of dance music and pop, but KiCK I feels more like exploration of internal landscape. Her three previous albums-Xen, Mutant, and Arca-along with 62-minute single released earlier this year, have deservedly won her critical acclaim and fervent fanbase. Her singular production incorporates unorthodox elements-abrasive percussion, high-pitch whines and screeches-while hinting at chords and convention, but turning away from normality at last moment. This latest project, audacious 12-track album, is heightened version of her previous projects, now overlaid with pop sheen. On KiCK I, Arca probes boundary between noise and pop with chaotic, rich, layered textures, which fuel her anthemic production. Splashes of her familiar sounds are evident throughout, but it also space for choruses alongside touches of trap, reggaeton and pop. Afterwards, Arca create orchestral backdrop for Bjork to whisper-sing in Spanish, implementing meditative pause amidst album turbulence, while ROSALIA also hops on KLK for hyperkinetic, club-ready track. It is first time Arca has collaborated with others on solo album, and aforementioned features, along with feted producer SOPHIE and London electronic artist Shygirl, help to elevate project, adding further colours to Arcas world. Considering range of genres incorporated in album, it is stunning that it never veers fully towards only one. Instead, KiCK I incorporates pop, experimental, noise, and psychedelia into one project. Amid highly acclaimed career, Arcas latest album presents new high-water mark.

Dehd: Flower of Devotion

Jesus and Mary Chain, Royal Trux and Spacemen 3 evoked by many albums these days, but theyre present in glorious splendor on Flower Of Devotion, third full-length by Chicago trio Dehd. With singers Emily Kempf and Jason Balla trading snarling, sneering, drawling vocals over twanging, heavily reverbed guitars and echo-laden drums, its album that could have come out on Drag City Records in 1992 but instead brought welcome jolt to today's feeble rock landscape. What makes Flower Of Devotion so much more than nerd-out for wizening rockers with long memories is trios ' unexpectedly hook-fill songs, which are actually strengthened by their idiosyncratic setting: Kempf punctuates her verses with yelps and whoops and even almost-yodels; Ballas's drawl is almost comically exaggerated, and he knows how to craft distinctive riff or melody that take full advantage Of his guitars reverb being turn up all way, all Time. Bands ' Template Is Basically Same As Their Earlier Release. Its just five times better, drastically improved sound and much more assured songwriting. There is even almost-ballad, Flood, with slow-ish beat and wistful, somber tone. Songs deal with weighty topics. Several are about loneliness and isolation, while Month, according to Balla, explores cyclical nature of memory and how our relationship with particular time changes through years, but combination of their singing styles and bounce of music often distracts from lyrics until after couple of listens. Flower Of Devotion is one of most lively and inspired rock albums to come down pike in recent memory and hopefully will inspire pack of like-mind young musicians, who have never heard of bands mentioned above, to follow in its wake.
