Favorite EP’s/Singles of 2020

It’s my favorite time of year when I get go back through all the records released in 2020 that I listened to and put together a list of my favorites to share. This year I had so many albums to share that I had to create two lists. One for EP’s and singles and one for full-length releases. I’ve included Bandcamp links where they were available. I think each of these releases is worth a listen. Go check out some new tunes! Enjoy.
