ACL 2020 ~ Best Rock, Post-Rock, Folk & Jazz

All four of our sub-categories find a home in this year’s list, forming a diverse community.  Loud and soft tones co-exist, but no voice is raised to drown out the rest.  If only our whole world could be like this!

CORECASS ~ V O I D

Hamburg’s CORECASS (Elinor Lüdde) is impossible to pigeonhole.  Her chosen name sounds like that of an industrial act and is similar to that of an established metal band (Carcass).  Her template mutates from release to release, encompassing rock, electronics, modern composition, gothic

Selfless Orchestra ~ Great Barrier

The 2020 news cycle has been dominated by politics, protests and the pandemic, to the extent that we’ve almost forgotten about all the other important issues.  For example, the Great Barrier Reef is badly in need of protection, ravaged by
