The year 2020 has not (and it’s possible you’ve noticed this already) been the greatest ever. However, that doesn’t mean nothing great has come out of it. New artists and new music have continued to arrive with pleasing regularity, despite everything.

This year our Approved column covered 90 new acts, and you can acquaint yourself with all of them in our CMU Approved In 2020 playlist. As ever, it’s an eclectic journey through music, and we reckon you’ll find something in here that will form part of the soundtrack to your 2021. Hey, maybe you’ll even get to see them play live!
