Our annual quest for the best returns!
Posted in randomized order, the nominations for the SBS Best New Sound of 2020 get revealed from Dec. 6th – 15th!
Join us in congratulating our official nomination of day 07 – Joho!
For as many great artists & bands as tends to end up on these top ten lists of ours at the finish of a year – it’d be extremely tough to find another name that gave a run at our Best New Sound in 2020 more legitimate shots than Joho has. It’s not that he’s trying harder to make it to the #1 spot on this tiny little site of ours, it’s simply a matter of awesomeness comes extremely natural to him, and he’s proven that over several records. While we have mainly known the man as a hybrid rapper, highly capable of handling absolutely everything from the bars to singing the hooks – Joho made a massive switch in style & sound in 2020 for one of the records he released, taking on the persona of Dirk Turquoise & The Grimy Pastels to deliver a completely different set of songs than he’s ever put out in the past. More than a commendable effort for such an extraordinary departure from the artist we knew, into something wildly unexpected – the dude sounded inspired like never before in the Alt/Pop-Rock lineup of cuts on Parliament Of Fools – and for these reasons among so many others in 2020, Joho belongs in this year’s top 10.
