We’re more than halfway through 2020 and this year is moving at a strange pace, but sometimes you need to take a minute, look back on the good parts of the year, and/or lose yourself in some great music.

Read on for our picks (in no particular order) and let us know what other new folk albums you’ve been digging in the comments…
