This is part 2 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 E to N.
