We take a break from surveying the best of the 2010's to take a gander at five releases from the second half of this wunnerful year, 2020. Maybe everything else has gone to heck in a handcart this year but the music releases remain strong, as our survey attests. Three of the five releases are on up and coming label Outside In Music and all of them have something to recommend. Aaron Burnett - JUPITER CONJUNCT; Kasperi Sarikoski – 3 + 1; Júlia Karosi - WITHOUT DIMENSIONS; Chad McCullough – FORWARD; Mariel Bildsten – BACKBONE. Pop matters dips into that bane/blessing of the 1970s, disco.
