One of the most influential pieces of media to me that came out in 2020 is the album “Getting into Knives” by The Mountain Goats. In mid-2019 I had a now close friend introduced me to the band, with their songs Possum by Night and This Year. This is the first album of theirs I have been able to experience of the release of. During trying times it has meant the world to me. If you’re looking for new music, or just have the extra time I recommend giving it a listen.
Personally, I enjoy the first and last song of the album especially. Like most albums by The Mountain Goats, the best way to listen is to start at the begining and listen to it as a story until the end.
