While we are not, in fact, 569 months into the year 2020, at times it certainly feels that way. But even if that were true, it still wouldn’t be enough time to cover all of the great music released this year—especially after the month of July. A few of the recordings in this month’s column will surely be mentioned again come December, when the various end-of-year Best Of lists begin to surface. As has been the case every month of the pandemic shutdown, this month’s list is a mix of studio recordings, live performances, DIY isolation home sessions, and archival material. At a time when we are craving a sense of normalcy, we’re reminded that music is one place we can always turn.
