I’m going to be real: this is the first record in a good long while that has made me burst into tears. Let me try and explain.

For months now, I've been on the edge of my seat waiting for one particular album this December to drop. Some have written this year off already, culminating their end of the year lists, but for me? There was a noise rock record that I knew in the back of my mind, with no bias, would probably be one of my favorite records of the year. I was shaking my leg in ... read more
#22 of my Top 50 Albums of 2020:
