2020, huh. It's been a memorable(?) year, that's for sure. In the years to come we'll probably remember it due to the contested presidential election and the global pandemic, but it turns out there were a couple of other interesting things happening just below the radar. As is SPB tradition, we've passed the mic over to our friends in the music world to tell us how they'll remember 2020, the music they're excited about for 2021, and (if possible) something positive that's come from the Covid-19 lockdown the world has faced this year. Here's some choice quotes:
"We’re just fabulously relieved that Trump lost. We cannot overstate the depths of our hostility toward that fuckface."
- Heart & Lung
"I’ve got a mask on, so those little things like smiling in the warehouse when someone makes a dumb joke are fruitless. You’ve got to make me laugh so hard you can see it in my eyes and, bud, I’m a huge bummer, so good luck with that."
- Foxfires (Josh Lyford)
"My favorite development from this pandemic is the amount of new interesting collaborations that I’m seeing being done electronically. I almost feel like this pandemic was the show that musicians needed to embrace technology and start to do more remote collaborations."
- Secret Fun Club (Sal Gallegos III)
