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.

The Beths are a rock band based in Auckland, New Zealand, founded by lead singer/songwriter Elizabeth Stokes and guitarist Jonathan Pearce. Blending cool, catchy riff rock with fun vocals -- from all four band members, no less -- the band has a likeably addictive sound.
