Quiet Indie Songs of 2020

Quiet Indie Songs of 2020

Chart positions

This show was 1st in the global indie chart, 1st in the global chill chart, 1st in the global folk chart, 1st in the global acoustic chart and 5th in the global chillout chart.

I listen to as much indie music as I do ambient music. Looking at my favorite songs of 2020, I noticed that several were quiet tunes that would be appropriate for an LLM mix.

Squirrel Flower was my big discovery this year, a few of her songs turned out to be my most played tunes of the year. Phoebe Bridgers had one of the best albums of the year but my two fav songs on it were a bit loud for this mix so I went with the beautiful "Moon Song."

Listen closely at 43:28 for "The President Sang Amazing Grace" by Kronos Quartet & Meklit. It pays homage to the moment President Obama sang Amazing Grace during the funeral of state senator and pastor Clementa Pinckney on June 26, 2015, in Charleston, South Carolina. It is absolutely one of the most beautiful songs ever recorded.

I also want to give a shout out to a local band that made my top ten list this year - Field Report. Their album, "Brake Light Red Tide," has a great sound and beautiful production.

Tracklist is in the comments.

A series is a good idea! Putting that into action might be hard but I'd sure like to try. Thanks for listening and for the idea. Cheers!
