- The lack of touring is really hurting bands and fans

- Breitling's #9

- A Matmos side project, "a niche of a niche"

- Kumar's #10

- All-star post-punk act out of LA

- Kumar's #9

- The loud/loud dynamic

- Breitling's #8

- Solo album from singer of Hop Along

- Breitling's #7

- Ambient electronic from an Italian musician in his 60s

- Bandcamp Friday has been a big hit this year

- Kumar's #7

- New band from Ian MacKaye, Amy Farina and Joe Lally

- Harking back to Fugazi's sound

- Kumar's #6

- Looking forward to new releases from Sam Prekop, Katie Day, Bob Mould, IDLES, Fontaines DC, Psychedelic Furs

- When will concerts happen again?

- Probably dependent on a vaccine

- Liability is a big factor in whether shows come back
