The Sorry Scholar’s Best Tracks of March 2020

One of the strangest months in living memory was matched in kind by one of the wildest for music; new gems from Art Blakey and Bob Dylan (17 minutes!), alongside new albums at last from Four Tet, The Weeknd and Childish Gambino, the last released as nameless livestream with no cover. These alongside fantastic cuts from Jarvis Cocker, Haim, Nicolas Jaar, Shabaka and the Ancestors, Jay Electronica, The Dixie Chicks, Disclosure, Norah Jones, Run the The Jewels, Bicep and The Dirty Projectors… If there was every a time to scale this bracing mountain of new talent and thriving legends then it’s now, from the sofa, washing your hands.
