Best Albums of the First Half of 2020

Health insurance rip off lying FDA big bankers buying
Fake computer crashes dining
Cloning while they're multiplying
Fashion shoots with Beck and Hanson
Courtney Love, and Marilyn Manson
You're all fakes
Run to your mansions
Come around
We'll kick your ass in

real list at some point but for now just some shit i liked

cs + kreme - snoopy
leafar legov - mirror
the 1975 - notes on a conditional form
loopsel - the spiral
tom james scott - mine is the heron
floating di morel - summer has become cold
carmen villain - affection in a time of crisis
fiona apple - fetch the bolt cutters
ulla - tumbling towards a wall
serwed - serwed II
the soft pink truth - shall we go on sinning
beatrice dillon - workaround
andrew tuttle - alexandra
caroline - dark blue/brj + “bergensbanen”
greenhouse - six songs for invisible gardens
nicholas jaar - cenizas

quarantine inspired me to start my own weekly internet radio show, so i feel like i’ve been more intentional about seeking out new music than i almost ever have been. it’s been super fun and there’s so much good stuff i’ve come across that i need to give more time to.
