Tyler, The Creator, Call Me If You Get Lost

The third album from Virginia singer-songwriter (and one-third of boygenius) Lucy Dacus sports more of her transcendent indie rock. “I don’t necessarily think that I’m supposed to understand the songs just because I made them,” Dacus says in a press statement, “I feel like there’s this person who has been in me my whole life and I’m doing my best to represent them.”
No R&B group left their mark on 2020 quite like SAULT. The secretive collective shared the projects Untitled (Black Is) and Untitled (Rise), the former of which was our second favorite project of the year. The new project Nine may only be available for streaming and purchase for 99 days, judging from a timeline on the band's website.

Lightning Bug, A Color of the Sky
Lightning Bug were almost certainly kaput after sharing their 2019 album October Song, but thankfully, a rush of inspiration has resulted in a new full-length from the swoony pop group. "For A Color of the Sky," Lightning Bug's songwriter Audrey Kang told The FADER, "I knew exactly what I wanted. I just knew."
