Those of you who have read me for a while will know I listen to a great deal of music. My tastes are broad, from rock to jazz, hip hop to blues, R&B to classical, opera to indie, and many genres in between. And I enjoy music from all over the world.
I listen to a lot of new albums and these are my fifteen favourites from those released in 2021 that came to my attention. Each one, in its own way, excited, moved, touched, impressed and delighted me.
They are not in any particular order:
Sons of Kemet – Black to the Future
Wolf Alice – Blue Weekend
Little Simz – Sometimes I might be Introvert
Arooj Aftab – Vulture Prince
Lana Del Rey – Chemtrails over the Country Club
Nubya Garcia – Source + We Move
St. Vincent – Daddy’s Home
Swindle – The New World
The Killers – Pressure Machine
Mdou Moctar – Afrique Victime
Lana Del Rey – Blue Banisters
Nick Cave & Warren Ellis – Carnage
Arab Strap – As Days Get Dark
London Grammar – Californian Soil
Self Esteem – Prioritise Pleasure
If you ever get a chance to listen to any of them, I hope you enjoy.
