While most of 2020’s chaos has led to large amounts of stress and anxiety, this same chaos worked as a driving force for some great albums from Black artists. Spanning multiple genres, these are some of my favorite albums of the year from Black artists.
The Killers capture the synth-rock catchiness of their early singles and again hook the world’s ears in their latest “Imploding the Mirage” – By Caleb Spencer
“The production levels of the album are intricately woven around each song like a cozy blanket on a chilly Sunday morning” – Jared Shuff on Jeremy Zucker’s debut album
“If you want to be confronted with all forms of mental crises in a Cyndi Lauper fashion, Of Montreal’s “UR FUN” is worth multiple listen-throughs.” By Leslie Grajeda
