  • Nala Sinephro: Space 1.8
    <p>The brilliant and unassuming debut from the young UK musician and composer is a benchmark in ambient jazz featuring outstanding players and delicately woven arrangements. </p>

  • Low: Hey What
    <p>On the follow-up to 2018’s astonishing <em>Double Negative</em>, Mimi Parker and Alan Sparhawk push deeper into abstraction, finding fresh angles on the themes that have animated them since the beginning.</p>

  • Indigo De Souza: Any Shape You Take
    <p>The North Carolina songwriter’s outstanding second album spans grungy rock and colorful, hi-fi pop, illuminating her impressive voice and her ability to wring out every last drop of emotion.</p>

  • Turnstile: Glow On
    <p>The Baltimore band’s spectacular fourth record is all groove, riffs, and passion. It is not a crossover hardcore album that looks to transcend the genre, but one that tries to elevate it to its highest visibility.</p>

  • Ka: A Martyr’s Reward
    <p>One of rap’s most inventive stylists surfaces from his memories to reflect on himself and his vocation, transforming his latest record into a searing, soulful gem in his catalog.</p>

  • L’Rain: Fatigue
    <p>The Brooklyn songwriter and sound artist’s second album is a kind of spiritual accounting, a swirling blend of orchestral groans and human whispers that evokes subconscious drift.</p>

  • Tyler, the Creator: Call Me If You Get Lost
    <p>With DJ Drama in tow, Tyler thrives in the realm of the rap mixtape, which allows him great freedom to explore every facet of his talent as a producer, writer, and vocalist. </p>

  • Faye Webster: I Know I’m Funny haha
    <p>There is so much depth to Faye Webster’s dazzling fourth album. It strikes a perfect balance between classic country stoicism and the sound of the saddest person you follow on social media.</p>

  • Mach-Hommy: Pray for Haiti
    <p>On one of his most ambitious and definitive projects, Mach-Hommy reunites with Westside Gunn and puts on an unforgettable clinic with his razor-sharp bars and an exceptional eye for detail.</p>

  • Mdou Moctar: Afrique Victime
    <p>The Tuareg guitarist and his bandmates deliver the fullest picture of his gifts yet. Recorded piecemeal during tour breaks, the album captures the group’s easy chemistry and explosive energy.</p>

  • Iceage: Seek Shelter
    <p>With production by Peter Kember and an added gospel choir, the Danish band’s fifth album completes their transformation from grim-faced nihilists to wearied soothsayers.</p>

  • Arooj Aftab: Vulture Prince
    <p>The Pakistan-born, Brooklyn-based composer draws from jazz, Hindustani classical, and folk to create a heartbreaking, exquisite document of the journey from grief to acceptance.</p>

  • The Armed: ULTRAPOP
    <p>The third album from the Detroit collective is an exceptional melding of hardcore, noise, and pop. Abstract concepts aside, the Armed makes thunderous and discordant music move with great finesse.</p>

  • Vijay Iyer / Linda May Han Oh / Tyshawn Sorey: Uneasy
    <p>Even as they negotiate complex parameters of rhythm and harmony, the trio’s expertly attuned playing evokes the openness of improvisation and the urgency of justice.</p>

  • Spirit of the Beehive: ENTERTAINMENT, DEATH
    <p>The outstanding album from the Philadelphia electro-psych trio is reclusive, cryptic, late-night paranoia music. Their oblique songs can evoke an entire landscape of feeling in very few words.</p>

  • Dry Cleaning: New Long Leg
    <p>The London art-rockers’ outstanding debut is a droll album full of surreal images, bizarre obsessions, and sense memories. The cumulative effect of Florence Shaw’s narration is inexplicably wonderful.</p>

  • Lost Girls: Menneskekollektivet
    <p>The debut LP from the duo Jenny Hval and Håvard Volden is a warm-blooded exploration of the sensuality of the artistic process.</p>

  • Floating Points / Pharoah Sanders / The London Symphony Orchestra: Promises
    <p>The all-star collaboration between a producer, a saxophonist, and a symphony is a celestial event. But it’s Pharoah Sanders’ playing that holds it all together, a clear late-career masterpiece. </p>

  • Cassandra Jenkins: An Overview on Phenomenal Nature
    <p>Filled with people, stories, and dialogue, the New York songwriter’s second album flows like an emotional breakthrough, tying together disparate observations into a serene and unified vision.</p>

  • The Weather Station: Ignorance
    <p>Tamara Lindeman’s songwriting has reached stunning new heights. With a full band supporting her, her new album draws upon the natural world to create unforgettable moments of calm and beauty.</p>

  • Jazmine Sullivan: Heaux Tales
    <p>On her fourth album, Jazmine Sullivan contends with all that can be lost and gained through sex and love. She is in full command of her spectacular voice and totally delivers on an ambitious concept.</p>

  • Navy Blue: Song of Sage: Post Panic!
    <p>On his second album of 2020, the underground New York rapper reaches a new level. The vibe is calm and bittersweet, as Navy Blue sinks deep into the recesses of his mind.</p>

  • Playboi Carti: Whole Lotta Red
    <p>The Atlanta rapper’s third record is both wildly innovative and strikingly consistent. It’s hard, melodic, experimental, and unlike anything else happening in mainstream rap.</p>

  • Amaarae: The Angel You Don’t Know
    <p>With a distinctive singing voice and confidence in spades, the breakout Afropop star swoops through a pacesetting fusion of alté, R&amp;B, Southern rap, mall-rock, and Top 40 pop.</p>

  • Angel Bat Dawid / Tha Brothahood: LIVE
    <p>This revelatory and confrontational live album centers around Angel Bat Dawid’s prowess as a bandleader. With her eclectic band, it is a brilliant document of how free jazz functions as both exploration and exorcism.</p>
