This song by Australian band Skegss is off their latest album Rehearsal, released in March of 2021. The video was shot on drummer Jonny Lani’s farm and is a perfect match for the high energy song.  For those unfamiliar with Aussie slang, “Bush TV” is a term for a campfire.

2020 was a crazy year, to say the least, and this playlist reflects that. Many songs that made it to this year’s list seem tailor made for the frustrations, anger, and loneliness of 2020; while others are just joyous and fun. A few artists from last year’s “best of” playlist also make a repeat appearance this year.

We lost several excellent artists this year. The last recorded song by John Prine (who passed away due to complications from COVID last April) was released in 2020 and is included in this playlist.

Here’s hoping for a return to live music in 2021 and a better year for us all.
