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.
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 Radar" gives you a quick overview on the music that matters the most this week.
Bridging the past of soul music into a bright new future is the London-based singer Celeste Waite. She just released her highly anticipated debut "Not Your Muse" spanning from catchy pop choruses to soulful depth. NBHAP author Liv spoke to the musician about what moves her and the pressure of putting out a record in the public eye.
