Sum up 2020 in three words

Load Of Shit

Your favourite band/artist of the year?

O’Brother where a band I accidentally chanced on via YouTube algorithms and subsequently ended up being the band I listened to the most on Spotify

Favourite TV show of the year?

The Mandalorian. I’m not a fan of the Star Wars saga at all but this just feels like the most Star Warsy thing that has come out of that franchise since A New Hope

What was your favourite gig/live stream event?

Code Orange did one of the first Twitch livestream gigs and it was excellent from start to finish. Even the empty venue didn’t stop their energy.

Any upcoming artists we should keep an eye out for in 2021?

A rap group called clipping. that came on the old Spotify algorithms. Their latest albums an ode to a multitude of horror films. Check out their track Say My Name which is based on Candyman.
