There is a lot that happened this year that may yet need a few more years to fully process, but the one thing that it did not fall short on is its dedication to the full-length album. These artists didn’t just deliver anywhere between single and double-digit tracks, slapped together into one somewhat cohesive album and release it into the aether, hoping for some easy returns. They wrote stories, created entire landscapes we’ve never seen before (or simply forgot where to look for them) and turned blurry, ineffable thoughts into piano ballads, folk tunes, or just a few searing lines in a mind-bending chorus. They did more than just release a body of work— they gave us something to hold on to; to help put into words what we couldn’t bring ourselves to utter, and to finally give us a safe space where we may face our fears, and be ready to face another day. – Valeria Dulava, Indie Editor
