Playlist for January 3, 2021 – The Best of 2020

January 3, 2021

As is customary for Audiosyncracy, the first show of every year is devoted to a retrospective of what I deem to be the best music received in 2020. To be clear, the music selected need not have been created in 2020 but received by me during the calendar year. The list is highly subjective and should be thought of as one host’s opinion of the best music of the year. Many “honorable mentions” will be enjoyed throughout January.
