One of my favorite (former) music bloggers from back in the days of the old blogosphere, Frank Yang of Chromewaves.net, just posted his 2020 music list. Yang has been diving into a lot of post-punk lately, and reacquainting himself with some of the genre’s past luminaries (Echo & The Bunnymen, The Psychedelic Furs, Siouxsie & The Banshees, Bauhaus, The Sound, Sad Lovers & Giants).
It’s interesting to see how his fascination with 80’s staples of alternative rock informs his choices of what was appealing in 2020. Although, a couple of the choices are new LP’s from some of those post-punk progenitors. As a bonus, you get a picture of Yang’s little guy in a cute Stone Roses onesie.
