In a year riddled with unexpected craziness, one saving grace has been the steady amount of music being released to alternative radio!

From the Instagram and Facebook live videos to the music recorded under quarantine, there has been no shortage of musical amazement out there. For me, between working nights and curating Indies Only, I've had more than the perfect soundtrack for this crazy year!

Stay tuned for a list of indie music that attracted my attention in 2020.
