Great picks @furryfan - enjoyed them all!
Here are my 10, in no particular order:
Loraine James - Self Doubt (Leaving The Club Early) - from a record full of highlights, I really love the playful nature of this one, and the fourth wall breaking vocals.
Tyler, The Creator - Massa - the incredible standout track on a wonderful, sprawling album. Deeply personal, political and intelligent lyrics, amazing flow, fantastic instrumentation and beats. Stunning.
Tirzah - Devotion (feat. Coby Sey) - yet to give the full album a spin (will remedy that very soon), but everything about this (including the video) is just a delight.
Earl Sweatshirt - 2010 - dropped a couple of weeks ago and blew me away instantly. What a beat.
Let’s Eat Grandma - Two Ribbons - heartbreaking and life affirming at the same time, such a beautiful track and video especially if you know what these two have been through over the last couple of years.
Bobby Gillespie & Jehnny Beth - Chase It Down - wasn’t expecting to have a song featuring BG in the year 2021, but there is something about this duet that is just right and I’ve played it a lot.
Chvrches & Robert Smith - How Not To Drown - another brilliant duet which I’ve never tired of despite playing it to death for months.
The Goon Sax - In The Stone - was disappointed that the album fell off a cliff after the first couple of tracks, but this is great.
Daniel Avery - Hazel & Gold - really hope I get the chance to see Daniel live some time in 2022.
Lost Girls - Love, Lovers - I refrained from choosing this last time as its over 15 mins long but it’s probably my track of the year now. Just gets better with every listen, and the time just disappears.
