Brucey bonus: My Year in Tracks
Since I've spent most of this year at home, I've listened to a lot more music than in previous years. In fact, this list could have been so much longer that it is, so I decided to curate a playlist featuring tracks off almost all of the albums I've listened to throughout 2020.
It really has been a shit year all round but music, has and always will, provided me with a way to escape. This playlist is over 4 and a half hours long, so pour yourself a glass of whatever takes your fancy and enjoy.
Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year.
