Here's my best-of-2020 music list: [www.gaycitynews.com]. I've made a Spotify playlist to go along with it, [open.spotify.com].

I am familiar with Backxwash - award-winning Backxwash, as she has already won the Polaris Prize in Canada.

However, I think licensing issues are preventing a lot of people from finding out about her.

Thanks, by the way, for including country - I loved Pam Tillis' album (not on your list).

I'm frankly just happy for any year-end best of that includes RTJ, if not Midnight Oil (their best album in years) or Fontaines D.C. (they're 2-for-2, AFAIC.)

I've wondered if Backxwash is gonna get sued by Led Zeppelin or Black Sabbath for using blatant uncleared samples, as the Polaris Prize win raised her profile. Her music is unavailable on streaming services right now, and she's not charging money to download GOD HAS NOTHING... on Bandcamp. But her music relies so much on samples that I wonder how she can go forward without a much bigger budget for licensing.

This is the first year in at least a decade that I did not have to do a top 10 list. I can’t tell you how relieved I am about that.

If Backxwash gets popular enough, she could do what The Avalanches did when copyright law meant they had to change the way they go about their business: just get a heap of special guests in.
