Here is my 2 top 20 for 2020.
I won't make a definitive order of preference, but it's close enough

Trees Speak - Ohms Neo-krautrock (Köln-Dusseldorf school) done the US way by a pair of brothers
Zopp - Zopp Can't get enough of this Canterbury album, it doesn't help that the last track is phenomenal
Wobbler - Dwellers Of The Deep
Isobar - Isobar
Tigran Hamasyan - The Call Within A return to Red Hail and Mockroot.
Guillaume Perret - A Certain Trip Second solo album without Electric Epic,
Elds Mark - s/t Great Scandic retro-prog
Polymorphie - Claire Venus (Grolektif crowd - Ni, Piniol, Poil)
Moleslope - Slope late 2019 Jap Canterbury
Trees Speak - Shadow Forms see above, but without the surpise of their debut
Scherzoo - 05 almost the same as usual (different label) but a twist towards 03 rather than 04
Grumblewood - Stories of Strangers
Glass Museum - Reykjavik (belgian piano-drum duo doing a quieter GoGo Penguin type of music)
Jaga Jazzist - Pyramid
Hedvig Mollestad - Ekhidna
John Zorn - Baphomet
The Third Mind - S/T Dave Alvin (yes of The Blasters)'s excellent psych/prog project including guest Jesse Sykes. lots of cover including Alice Coltrane's Saatchidananda
The Dream Syndicate - The Universe Inside my fave in a very long time.
Aksak Maboul - Figures Not top 2020 potential, but worthy of bottom of top list

bubbling under:
Troissoeur - Troissoeur 2020
Magic Bus - The Earth Years (great artwork but not really a good album)
Reve d'Elephant - Dance Dance
Gosta Berlings Saga - Konkret Musik (not likely)
Homunculus Res - Andiamo in giro di notte e ci consumiamo nel fuoco
Jakko M. Jakszkyk - Secrets and Lies
Dai Kaht - Dai Kaht II
Deep Purple - Whoosh!
Blue Oyster Cult -The Symbol remains

Wildflower - Season 2
Irreversible Entanglements - Who Sent You? IAR label's best artistes with Makaya McCraven
GoGo Peguin - S/T Old tricks by not as new dogs anymore.
Shabaka & The Ancestors - We Are Sent Here By History Shabaka does it again, but the surprise id gone
Nat Birchall - Mysticism Of Sound Alone on this coarcher
Gary Bartz & Maisha - Night Dreamer Direct​-​To​-​Disc Sessions Bartz meets the LDN scene
Chip Wickham - Shamal Wind
John Zorn - Baphomet
Antoine Pierre Urbex - Suspended (Live At Flagey) Urbex goes Bitches Brew 
Tigran Hamasyan - The Call Within A return to Red Hail and Mockroot.
Guillaume Perret - A Certain Trip Second solo album without Electric Epic, but as if it was with them
Idriss Ackamoor & The Pyramids - Shaman!
Yazz Ahmed Quintet - When We Were Live
