130 Albums Released in 2020: Post-Punk, Dark Wave, Synth-Pop, Alternative, Gothic Rock…

2020 foi com certeza um dos anos mais produtivos do século, musicalmente falando. Com o isolamento causado pela pandemia do “novo” coronavirus, muitos músicos e produtores se viram em um momento propício para a produção de novos materiais (álbuns, EPs, singles, video clipes, etc.). Essa atual situação também serviu de inspiração no processo criativo e assim surgiram muitas novas bandas e projetos solo.

Desde o final de 2015 eu organizo playlist e sets reunindo os lançamentos do ano. Quem tiver interesse, pode ouvir as seleções de 2016 à 2019 na minha página do Mixcloud ou no meu canal do Youtube, que conta com as playlists de 2015 à 2019, além dos sets.

Para criar esses sets eu geralmente selecionava 70 álbuns (algumas edições contam com EPs), mas como 2020 foi um ano recheado de lançamentos, a tarefa ficou ainda mais díficil e eu decidi aumentar esse número, criando uma seleção de 100 álbuns dividida em dois sets de mais de 3 horas de música. E mesmo assim alguns nomes ficaram de fora. E por isso eu resolvi criar essa lista com mais 30 álbuns lançados no ano que felizmente ficou pra trás. A lista conta com artistas de post-punk, shoegaze, dark wave, synth-pop, minimal wave, cold wave e EBM de diversas nacionalidades.

Abaixo você confere 130 álbuns quase que em ordem alfabética, contendo algumas informações como o nome do artista, título do álbum, gravadora, origem e link para ouvir no Bandcamp ou no Spotify. No fim da lista eu linkei os sets pra quem quiser ouvir no Youtube ou no Mixcloud (app ou navegador). As duas partes somam mais de 6 horas de música. Além disso, deixo também uma playlist no Youtube e Spotify com mais de 2 mil músicas lançadas em 2020.

Ouçam e apoiem artistas e gravadoras independentes, principalmente adquirindo o material (digital ou físico) ou ouvindo nas plataformas de streaming.
