Best of 2020 – David Soyka

David Soyka hosts Jumpin’ on the Bed Saturday afternoon from 4-6 (eastern).

In no particular order (though the first two vie for the top):

Bob Dylan/Rough and Rowdy Ways/Columbia Sony
Late Dylan at his finest. A” long” version of Murder Most Fowl is rumored.

Nick Cave/Ghosteen/Ghosteen LT.
Absolutely gorgeous. It’s a sad and beautiful world.

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds/Idiot Prayer: Nick Cave Live at Alexandra Palace/Bad Seed Ltd.
For the same reason as above.

Laura Marling/Song for Our Daughter/Partisan
Another great song cycle from this artist. And, no it’s not autobiographical. Though sure sounds as if it could be.

Gillian Welch/Boots Vol. 2 and 3/Acony
Its Gillian Welch. What more can you ask for? Two album of “lost songs.” Good thing they are now found.

The New Ok /Drive By Truckers/Ato
No everything is not OK. But it’s more than OK to listen to Drive by Truckers elucidate why the New OK isn’t.

Fiona Apple/ Fetch the Bolt Cutters/ Epic
Fetch this album. Great mix of anger and weird sounds.

Waxahatchee/Saint Cloud/ Merge
Kind of a new direction, echoes of Springsteen.

Phoebe Bridgers/Punisher/Dead Oceans
Heartbreak. It makes for great songs.

Bruce Springsteen/Letter to You/Columbia Sony
Because he’s the boss.
