The 2021 Top Ten Show! For this year’s final episode of our little indiepop radio show, we do things a little bit differently and play a song each from our top ten albums plus our top ten singles from 2021, counting them down in pairs. Enjoy listening to the music that we’ve enjoyed listening to the most this year – thanks for tuning in and let’s do it again in 2022!
When we announced our top ten records last year, we were optimistic enough to claim that things would be fine and 2021 would be our year. Well, how wrong can you be. At the end of a year that has been every bit as difficult as the previous one, we still find ourselves in the same place, with the pandemic still raging and no prospect of it ending any time soon. So we’ll refrain from any further prophecies for now but are all the more grateful for the amazing spirit of resilience among labels, bands and artists and for excellent new music still being released every week. Here’s a list of the top ten singles / EPs from 2021 that we liked best. Read on
Corresponding to the top ten singles / eps from 2021 that we liked best (cf. post above), there is of course also a list of the top ten albums we felt the need to come back to most often to find some consolation going through this hellhole of a year. Here it is in full: these are the ten LPs that served that purpose best for us throughout the past twelve months. A sincere Thank You! to all artists, labels, and anyone else involved in their making! Read on
As we come closer to the year’s end, we can only hope you haven’t finalised your eoy-lists yet because chances are there’s some mighty contenders on this show – brilliant new music from Jetstream Pony, Seablite, Sun June and more, plus grateful bows to Slumberland Records and Indietracks. Enjoy listening to this month’s selection!
