Hello and happy holidays friends! The wide release of the documentary about the store this year brought back a lot of great memories along with a lot of sad ones (click here for links to watch the movie if you haven't yet). At the end of 2016, just six months after we closed, we shared what we thought would be our final batch of end-of-year staff favorites with you. Reflecting on the year about to pass, we wrote, "in hard times even more than joyful ones, music will sustain us, and there was so much incredible music this year to nurture us all." That sentiment has proven more true than ever in 2020. With that in mind, we've virtually reunited the former staff of Other Music once more to share some of our favorite new releases, singles, compilations and reissues from 2020 -- a year that changed us all in ways we're still just beginning to understand.
