In our year end list, you'll find over sixty albums from all genres that, despite all the turmoil of 2020, give us reason to celebrate.
Sharing our love of all things music since 2015.

SONG OF THE WEEK
SongL "Death House"
Artist: Sopor Aeternus and the Ensemble of Shadows.
T&E writer Mike Cochiolo says, "This incredible track off of their latest album, Island of the Dead, is one of the most interesting and enjoyable darkwave songs in the past decade. Accompanied by medieval inspired instrumentals, Anna-Varney Cantodea's tortured, feminine vocals balance between delicacy and vitriol, providing haunting and cathartic sensations simultaneously. Their lyrics are as relentlessly negative and cold as fans have come to expect from them since their debut in 1989, and they continue to deliver the sweet soothing sounds of decadence and despair that all great gothic artists are known for."
