We caught up with Illinois screamo band Frail Body back in March, when they told us what they'd been listening to in COVID isolation, and now that the year is ending, we've checked in again to ask them about their favorite music of the year. All three members shared their own lists, and you can find those below.

We're still waiting for a follow-up to Frail Body's two great 2019 releases, but in the mean time you can stream A Brief Memoriam below.
