Aside from the entries on the ReGen Staff Favorites of 2020 playlist, this year brought artists old and new into rotation with some fantastic releases. Then Comes Silence, All Them Witches, and Louisahhh were new discoveries that demanded attention and haven’t let go; meanwhile, old favorites like Ah Cama-Sotz, IAMX, ACTORS, and Carbon Based Lifeforms all produced new music that remind ReGen Staff Writer Brian H. McLelland why he loves them so. “My own personal taste varies wildly on this list, from icy post-punk, to hot Satanic doo-wop, pulse-pounding electronics, and occult technotriballism.” As the first of ReGen‘s individual staff playlists to reign in the beginning of a new year, these are the songs and artists Brian couldn’t get enough of. “Whatever your personal flavor, I hope you find something here to enjoy.”
