Having last released the very good A Gaze Among Them in 2019, Montreal post-metal band BIG | BRAVE recently revealed that they finished up work on a collaborative album with The Body. "Had been talking about making a record with these lads for a while," BIG | BRAVE wrote when they posted the above picture. "With the indispensable coconspirator [Seth Manchester, co-operator of Rhode Island's Machines With Magnets studio], we finally did! Can’t wait to share what we’ve done."

While you wait for more on that, we asked BIG | BRAVE guitarist Mathieu Ball what his favorite albums of 2020 were, and he responded with a list that includes Horse Lords, Sumac, Anna Von Hausswolff, Irreversible Entanglements, FACS, and more. See his list below.

Meanwhile, The Body also have a new album coming in January.
