After two decades or so you'd think I'd grow tired of creating year end lists. Quite the opposite seems to be the case. This year I welcome the task more so than ever. Music has always been therapeutic for me, and after a year of psychological unrest and uncertainty, it's been wonderful to see that music will always exist and perhaps even thrive under the most tense and uncertain conditions. It's an absolute comfort to know that music will always be around to soundtrack my life in some way, shape or form. Year end listing is easily my favourite exercise in mindfulness. Sorting, organizing, and curating the albums that I found myself repeating over the course of the year is a task that is always rewarding and just as exciting as the year's best new music. What could be better than compiling and revisiting a list of releases that gifted me so much beauty, distraction, solace and inspiration?
