Drowned in Sound - Best of 2020 Awards

Agree to disagree.
Good that we both like good things tho.
Must give the Strokes album a listen tbh, lost interest after LP3.

Real answer:

Best cover -

Or any of the covers AA Williams has been releasing lately.

Cover of the year for me is Heather Trost’s take on Harry Nilsson’s Jump Into the Fire. She’s got a 1960s pop/psych thing going on here.

If we’re talking about length if time away from the game Fiona Apple and The Chicks had very good comebacks too

yeah that’s a great cover

Ty Segall did a fantastic fuzzed up cover of the same song this year too (along with a few other Nilsson songs from the same album)

Comeback is Arab Strap surely

Strong cover contender would be Emma Swift’s excellently titled EP of Bob Dylan songs, Blonde on the Tracks. My personal favourite is I Contain Multitudes from his own 2020 album.

I don’t suppose it’ll get much traction here, but my comeback of the year is Levellers. First album for something like eight years, and it’s easily the best thing they’ve done in quarter of a century.

That’s lovely.

Big fan of the Bob version, definitely one of my tracks of the year

As for comebacks… I’m kind of surprised to be listening to new Doves and Tom Vek albums in 2020

Hum is the comeback of the year. Cheers.
