Year End 2020

Music: Pass The Mic: Artists and labels on 2020

Burnt Tapes (Phil LaTour)

1. What are your top five albums that were released in 2020? (In order 1-5)

I probably didnt listen to as much music this year weirdly. But big shout out to Spanish Love Songs - Brave Faces Everyone, Hot Mulligan - You'll be Fine, Lawrence Arms - Skeleton Coast, Taylor Swift - Folklore, Touche Amore - Lament.

2. What band did you discover in 2020 (can be a brand new band or an older band) that had an impact on your life? What made them significant?

Late to the party, I know, but I really got into Counterparts (they got me pumped when 2020 left me deflated) and slightly more obscurely, ASMR Whispers -- a cure for insomnia.

3. How will you remember 2020? (In terms of music)

We did put out a new EP that included a tree you could actually plant, which was fun.

4. What can we look forward to from you in 2021?

We're (Burnt Tapes) going to be recording LP2 in April, which i imagine will be both the best and worst thing we've ever done -- and hopefully, covid allowing, we'll finally get to the US after we didn't make it in 2020.

5. What records are you looking forward to most in 2021?

I'm looking forward to the new Kali Masi record. [We] played a few shows with them in the UK last year, and they are a special band.

Are Wilhelm Scream ever gonna put out another record?

6. Trying to put a positive spin on things, what is your favorite development from the global pandemic this year? (Is there a new medium you enjoy, a specific song or collaboration, personal news, etc. that was a bright spot?)

I read more books this year than I have in a long long time, including bucket list reads: The Stand (Stephen King), and Dune (Frank Herbert). Neither disappointed, but both have live-action adaptations coming out which rarely don't disappoint.
