The Ledge #433: Best Albums of 2020 (So Far)

The world may be ending but great music lives forever. Despite everything that has gone on this year there has still been a steady stream of fabulous albums released. Tonight's show is a look at the 40 best albums released in the first half of 2020. Well, that was the intention but it was discovered that one record included tonight was actually first put out in 2008. So it's the 39 best albums of the year, along with one of the best reissues. It's a great mix of artists still in their teens up to that grand old man named Bob Dylan. There's punk, Americana, power pop, postpunk, and garage rock. It's Scott music for Scott people!

After listening, please go purchase those tracks you enjoy! These great artists deserve to be compensated for their hard work, and every purchase surely helps not only pay their bills but fund their next set of wonderful songs. You can find this show at almost any podcast site, including iTunes and Stitcher...or
