As promised, here is our general list of the best LPs of 2021. Yesterday we shared our list of the best post-punk and wave albums, so obviously this one if focused on everything else (including garage, psych, lofi, punk and experimental sounds). We had a clear winner this year, in Riki’s stunning sophomore album. Nothing quite feels more 2021 than Gold did its revelry in 80s aesthetics and production values.
