Album of the Year was an easy and clear cut choice this year. The Eddie Chacon album struck me as remarkable from the first listen and only seemed to improve with time.

The best song of 2020 could only be “My Mind is Out of Its Mind” by Eddie Chacon. A beautiful song that transcended and, somehow, encapsulated a year that took such a toll on everyone

NOTE: this was compiled in April 2021. I’ve backdated it so it sits with all the rest of the end of year posts.
