Holy bananas, Batman! What. A. Year. Everything was shitty and probably the only year I can confidently say for everyone, this year was HELL. But not so fast there, Robin! (Idk why I’m going with this Batman theme, it’s the end of a very long year, give me a break…) The music that came out this year and all the amazing musician I got to chat with even over the phone during lockdowns really saved my life.

So here is part one of two of my favorite chitchats with bands I had in 2020. (Make sure to tune in again next week for the second and final part!)

(Artists Interviews: Yonatan Gat, The Paranoyds, Kahiem Rivera, Thick, Danny Denial, Baba Ali, & Red Arkade!)
