warofnature’s best music of 2020 – a soundtrack to the year of the rat

The best music of 2020 was dark and dystopian to a degree – I suspect 2021 will be next level dark, once releases catch up. No more preamble, we all know how shite the year was. The year of the rat, no less.

There were a lot of incredible records though. Here’s the top 10 albums – and a playlist of more.
