DIY Decides DIY’s Albums of 2020
From incendiary debuts, through to unexpected returns, here are DIY’s favourite albums from across the past twelve months.
Okay, okay: we know the drill by now. The past twelve months have been - ahem - interesting to say the very least, but if 2020 has supplied us with anything positive, it’s a slew of incredible albums. Yes, release schedules were scuppered and live shows non-existent, but we were still offered the gift of new music, and now, it’s about time we celebrated that.
From incendiary debuts from the likes of Sorry and Rina Sawayama, through to unexpected returns (Bright Eyes, The Strokes - we’re looking at you!), via all manner of amazing records in between, we asked our contributor friends to help Team DIY pool together the best of 2020.
So, here are DIY’s 20 favourite albums from across the past year!
