Every end of the month we publish reviews of some of the brand new records that moved us. These are the personal takes on hand-curated gems our team dug up (and the occasional chart topper), this time with Ana Lua Caiano, 7ebra, Cloth, Bongeziwe Mabandla, Mandy Indiana and Arlo Parks. Have you discovered something new? What was your favourite album this month?
Another year goes by and it was... well, definitely different than the last one but still quite weird. The second consecutive Covid year was a rollercoaster ride of emotions where hope and despair went hand in hand and we're surely finished yet. Luckily, this resulted in quite outstanding musical releases which gave us much needed comfort and distraction in these difficult times. Today, we're honouring the fifty records that meant the most to us in the past twelve months.
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
