This year has been a challenge for all of us and we were lucky enough to have such tremendous records on our side to comfort us in difficult times. From gentle melancholia, to raging fury - the albums of 2020 had a lot of stories to tell and these are the ones our staff enjoyed the most. If you haven't listened to all of them you now got a whole lockdown winter ahead of you to do that.
Ten years of music, ten personal stories. The writers of NBHAP are given the opportunity to reminisce about the records that excited them the most during the past decade. This is a subjective reflection rather than an ultimate conclusion. Austin Maloney takes up the reigns.
A musical outlet for those times when you just need to get a bit louder. Including music by IDLES, Shame, Ho99o9, METZ, Amly And The Sniffers, Deafheaven, HEALTH, The Soft Moon, Death Grips, Bully, Iceage and many more.
New favourites and beloved comebacks - The next twelve months will deliver plenty of musical highlights and we tell you right here what you should be excited about the most. And yes, that also includes a few delayed albums that were already part of our '2018 list' ...
It became an ongoing tradition on NBHAP to have all those 'End-Of-The-Year'-lists followed by an outlook of what lies ahead of us. So, buckle up and take a closer look what (hopefully) great albums might happen to us over the course of the next months.
