Albums, compilations, reissues and books from a year united in adversity.
Welcome to Deluxe Issue 21, our annual assessment of the last 12 months of - mostly - new music. Whereas we normally focus on the bricks, the mortar, the walls, the racks, the diligent and sonically enlightened folks that tend the till and all of the weird and wonderful creatures that shop there - this issue of Deluxe is all about the music, man. I don’t think that anyone would argue that 2020 has so far been a real sonofabitch, but you know what, reading through this top 100 albums list, it has at the very least sounded fantastic.
So for your consideration, one hundred albums (plus choice reissues, books and compilations) released between January and late October of this year that we have loved playing.
Hope you do too.
