Crumb - Jinx (2019)
Possibly the greatest piece of art I've ever let into my ears. This psychedelic expedition is incredibly haunting and induces such a moving nostalgic vibe. I haven't received cold chills from music for a long time until I discovered this album last year. Most definitely my number 1 album of 2019, and maybe even my number 1 of ALL TIME. Seriously, I cannot recommend this enough. If you are a fan of dream pop, indie rock/pop, and strong psychedelia blissful sounds, please check this out for the love of god.

Sex Swing - Type II (2020)
Collective noise rock, psychedelia, krautrock, and no wave influences come together to create a meticulously crafted behemoth that seeks to seduce, appall, and offer a catharsis that likely won't be matched this year.

Caleb Landry Jones - The Mother Stone (2020)

Bear - Propaganda (2020)
A great progressive metal album that mixes elements of metalcore, mathcore and even djent into one along with the gritty screams and the great cleans this album goes into my top ten albums this year.

Ulcerate - Stare Into Death And Be Still (2020)
Ulcerate have dropped one of the finest death metal records I've heard, and it is far from your traditional death metal sound too. The atmosphere of this record is incredibly bleak and hopeless, which will be sure to leave you feeling quite distraught. If you want to experience the end of life as we know it, let this record consume you.

Rina Sawayama – SAWAYAMA (2020)
Coming from a very solid EP release in 2017, Sawayama dropped this year what has to be one of the best Pop debut in a long time. Definitely to be checked out if you enjoy old school 2000s Pop; think Britney Spears with a touch of metal guitars and a plethora of other interesting subtleties.

Elephant Tree - Habits (2020)
A serene, haunting take on psychedelic metal. Within its essence ripples a warmth that is ephemeral; an aquatic weight that shimmers though each note. A curious wonder. Let its heavy, vibrant waves wash over you.

Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs - Viscerals (2020)
The swine have dialed back their savage assaults of noisy goodness into more bite-sized portions while recruiting some thrash and doom muscle. A goulash of gore and guts (both emotional and physical).

Arca - KiCk i (2020)
Easily up there for my AOTY list so far. No idea when it's supposed to be legitimately released, but this record is a piece of glitch hop / deconstructed club heaven. Brilliant.

Bolt Gun - Begotten (2020)
An album with a great mixture of sounds from a chill sombre tone to a brutal assault on the ears, it is very much a sound reminiscent of an atmospheric horror film but has piecing vocals to go along with it

Dropout Kings - GlitchGang (2020)
This EP has been on repeat in my house since it dropped. Can't get enough of this. I thought Audiodope was pretty good but this EP blows it out of the water. The diversity in the songs, the features, everything is just perfection. I think they have found their sound and I am excited for their next album. Also, Check out the song Virus if you want a Linkin Park throwback.

All Time Low - Wake Up, Sunshine (Japanese Edition) (2020)
This album is a perfect album in my opinion, though biased, it is truly amazing and almost like a breath of fresh air after the darker pop tone that Last Young Renegade had. If you love any rock or pop punk, this is a MUST listen! From back to front it is great and has some insanely catchy songs.

Loathe - I Let It in and It Took Everything (2020)
With haunting brutal riffs, horror-ish atmosphere and shoegaze tunes that are very reminiscent of Deftones, Loathe managed to make near perfect album. The atmosphere on this album is undeniably incredible, sets up tone for the whole record and you'll shiver in fear with how hellish most of the songs sound. That in contrast with the beautiful shoegaze songs make this record one of the best metalcore experiences ever.
