Best of 2021 mix - Volume 1

 


Despite the continuing pandemic, 2021 has been a very good year for new music, maybe even better than last year. This will be the first in maybe three volumes, making up a "shortlist" of my favourite releases this past year took quite some time! I could have made a mix from all 95(!) tracks I shortlisted, but instead I'll break it down so that each volume has 25 tracks each. As usual many different genres of music are included, though unsurprisingly psychedelia features the most. Note: take the cover art however you wish, it can be read 2 ways depending on your views. I've had my 3 jabs this year so that's all I'll be saying on the subject!

Manerg is currently sending my way a few of his favourites from the past year, and his first selection will be on the blog before the year end. As usual, info containing origin of each track is tagged in the music files and in the download file. I hope you enjoy this first selection from 2021 and, once again, stay safe!
