Like most people, 2020 was a blur—a year full of stresses and falling back to old comforts. The same goes for music. It was nothing but Epik High and KPop, and the occasional 80s music for me, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I discovered a couple of new artists that I’m in deep with now—Dreamcatcher and Stray Kids (welcome to the fam, kids!).
Here are the albums I listened to. (It is in order of when I listened to them, and the links go to Spotify.)
|EPIK HIGH | sleepless in _________|
Epik High (Hangul: 에픽하이) is a South Korean alternative hip hop group from Seoul, composed of Tablo, Mithra Jin, and DJ Tukutz. sleepless in __________ is their second extended play album.
Again, sleepless in ____________ remains my most listened album. It’s my sleepy time album; it lulls me to sleep in a way no album has ever done—and it’s because of the quietness and the honesty flowing out of it.
|VARIOUS ARTISTS | Birds of Prey OST|
Birds of Prey: The Album is the soundtrack album by various artists for the film Birds of Prey, released by Atlantic Records on February 7, 2020.
I loved the Birds of Prey movie—strange to remember that this was the last movie I saw in person—and the album is no surprise. It’s full of women empowerment songs that motivate you to get shit done.
