Every Friday music fans are faced with the same burning question: What to listen to from the sheer endless sea of new albums, EPs and other releases? Don't worry, the people of NBHAP are here to help you with that. Our very own release roundup gives you a quick overview on the music that matters the most this week.
It's been a turbulent and confusing year in many ways. But there's one thing the second pandemic year in a row hasn't been lacking of: plenty of good music to get us through these months of uncertainty between hope and despair. And for those of you who might have lost track in the daily storm of new releases we got you covered once again with a mighty list that includes those tracks that we'll connect with 2021 forever
From much loved favourites like Angel Olsen, Bill Callahan, Ólafur Arnalds, Fenne Lily or Adrianne Lenker right to brand new talents like CATT, Le Ren, Sand Co., Vaarin and Maya Hawke. These 100 tracks are fitting companions for the upcoming Covid winter days.
Last year's sparkling and sprawling All Mirrors marked yet another giant leap for Angel Olsen towards indie stardom. A place where she belongs but that can also come with a very dangerous environment. Turns out: Olsen can teach us all a thing or two about how to ruthlessly reflect. How to take a look in the mirror – and what to make of the many illusions and delusions that come with it.
Twelve months of great musical releases have passed and at the end of it it's time to recap the best of them like we always do when then the year is about to close its curtain. So, without further ado please find the fifty albums that impressed us the most during the past 12 months right here and feel happily invited to fall in love with those brilliant records as well.
Reflection time, girls and boys. As the year is heading for its final moments we take a moment to look back on the best songs of 2019. These are the fifty tunes you should definitely know before this decade ends, so hurry up and have a listen.
Moody music for the cold autumn and winter days is waiting for you, featuring Nick Cave, Angel Olsen, M83, Billie Eilish, Trentemøller, Black Sea Dahu, Death Cab For Cutie and plenty of other favourites from us.
