Favorite Music of 2021

Published on Dec 27, 2021

Time for a list of my favorite albums of 2020 - in order from most listens to least.

Cassandra Jenkins - An Overview of Phenomenal Nature

Favorite tracks: Michelangelo New Bikini, Hard Drive

Bob Dylan - Springtime in New York: The Bootleg Series, Vol. 16 / 1980-1985

I've liked Bob Dylan since junior year of high school, at least (20 years ago now). This year I got to see him in concert, and my wife and I agreed to go see him again any time we can. If I had spent more time listening to Rough and Rowdy Ways in 2020 it would have been at the top of my list last year. These boot leg releases are some of my favorite things, I probably listened to random Bob Dylan albums more in 2021 than I listened to anything else.

My favorite tracks: Fur Slippers (Shot of Love Outtake), Blind Willie McTell (Take 5 - Infidels Outtake), I and I (Infidels Alternate Take)

Sarah Mary Chadwick - Me and Ennui are Friends, Baby

Her 2020 album was one of my favorites from last year. This album is more of the same, I like it.

My favorite tracks: A Mother's Love, Let's Go Home, Will the Lord Hold My Hand

Celeste - Not Your Muse

The War on Drugs - I Don't Live Here Anymore

Durand Jones - Private Space
