A Humming Heart - Indian indie music 2020

Best independent music of 2020 so far

For this half-yearly list, A Humming Heart’s team of writers has considered independent music releases until the month of June 2020. The long-form or full-length albums seem to be outdated which meant we had to adapt. So, instead of considering the standard 7 tracks or more (or 30 minutes or longer), we have considered all the albums that consisted of five or more tracks. Our team went through each album (over 40 of them this time, and we’re only halfway through 2020). The list below is our attempt at keeping this as diverse as possible, a product of ten members sitting together (virtually of course) and putting this together. Here’s acknowledging the artists and music that brought us some respite in this world gone mad.
