A new year has come, so it's time for a new list to keep track of all the albums that I enjoyed. Of course it's a work in progress. Feel free to rec stuff from 2020 that you think I'd dig. List contains all 2020 albums that I've rated 3.5 and higher.
1Agnes Obel
Myopia


Folk / Electronic / Debussy-Satie-inspired

4.5
RUUULES, love Island of Doom, the t/t, closer and Can't Be, the rest is mega cool too. Her second best yet and a serious contender for this year's top 10 (saying this when 2020 is only halfway over yet...).

Nice, but I wish they didn't go for something similar to the Assassination-style, since that wasn't my fave Ulver at all. Time to shake things up again!
96Laurence Pike
Prophecy


Jazz/Experimental/Electronic

Excellent album that reminds me of Nicolas Jaar's debut sometimes. Pike is a jazz drummer/percussionist so expect lots of rhythm stuff here, with gorgeous production quality.

98Roméo Poirier

I'm still unsure why some ambient stuff really works, while other (even similar sounding) ambient is super boring. This guy knows how to keep me interested. Very nice album!
99Hymn
Breach Us


Doom Metal/Sludge Metal

3.5
I'm not at all at home in these genres, but this is very enjoyable. Really like the production too, which is usually what puts me off on modern metal.
