When it comes to the world of music, one thing seems clear this year is that guitar-driven rock music is coming back with most of this year’s best indie rock albums featuring guitars at the forefront. To discover more, have a look at the following list of top ten Indie rock albums of 2020.
The Slow Rush of Tame Impala
The Slow Rush of Tame Impala is regarded as a self-reflective open letter to the world since it is a really beautiful piece of music. On the album, Kevin Parker reminisces, the band’s fourth, offers notes on where he has come from, where he has been, and what the future may hold for his psyche, all amongst Tame Impala’s signature dreamy sound.
You know it’s the band the instant music starts, and the record is the mark of rare talent. The record is unique and can connect to American and British musical lineages. The 12-track album invests into how to survive, even when there is so much abundance around.
Fetch the Bolt Cutters of Fiona Apple
There was so much attention centered on a downright shocking line, included in the song For Her off Fetch the Bolt Cutters. The lyric is nearly screamed on record, Apple’s voice sizzling with powerful fury.
It’s a startling thing to hear, particularly in a song that starts as a multi-tracked cheerleader routine, all clapping percussion and rapid rhyming words. We listen a tale of a woman upset with her partner’s behavior, heavily implying this is a man in the media and one who has got away with far worse for far too long. This is not Apple’s own tale, but this is the story of another woman who has suffered and may go on to suffer under the shadow of a tasteless, feckless partner.
