RSU Radio Presents Best of 2020

At the end of each year, we ask our DJs and hosts to highlight a couple of their favorite songs released during the year. Although the task seems simple, it’s not easy to narrow down choice songs in a year as good for music as 2020. This year, we saw brand new albums from indie mainstays Fiona Apple, Caribou, The Microphones, and Phoebe Bridgers. We also saw up-and-coming acts make their mark with game-changing albums from the likes of Bartees Strange, Lomelda and Ohmme. After careful deliberation of all notable releases from 2020, we now have our best-of list from the past year.
