This is part 1 of 3 for my 2020 year in music recap. As always, this is an incomplete list of my favorites, and presented unranked, though along the way I may highlight some records that really stood out a little extra for me this year. We're doing things alphabetically this time around, so this episode covers artist names from A to D.
For the 200th episode of this show, we're featuring the Pittsburgh-based label, Misra Records, including an interview with label manager Jeff Betten. In this episode, we cover Misra's 20 year history, the relationship between physical records and streaming, the impact of the pandemic on the music industry at large, the geography of Pittsburgh and it's inherent benefits, and signing artists from unsolicited demos! This is part one of two focusing on Misra - in this episode you'll hear the interview and some new music from the label as well as other artists mentioned in our conversation, and then for next week, we'll take a deeper dive thru the label's two decades worth of music.
Double shots are on the menu, indie rock is on the menu and crazy electro madness from Dan Deacon is for dessert. Eat up, it's you Sunday dinner!
Some of my fav 2020/2019 albums, all double shots and all love.  Happy 15th anniversary to BTRtoday and the whole BTRtoday family!
Looking back at music from the first half off 2020 that we've been enjoying... part 1 of 2!
