    Now that ends of year lists have been posted, time to get excited for 2021 new releases.

    I'm guessing albums from:
    Gang Of Youths (were working on)
    Face To Face (recorded)
    Kevin Devine (recording/ed I think)
    Manchester Orchestra (finishes stages)
    Blink (recording EP or album)
    Frank Turner (has talked about what it would be)
    NOFX-Single Album
    Dashboard Confessional (recorded and delayed due what's going on)
    Julien Baker (complete)
    William Ryan Key (collection of songs from Patreon)

    No idea but maybe:
    Thrice
    Noah Gundersen
    Justin Courtney Pierre (had been in production)
    All Get Out
    something from Jimmy Eat World
    Manchester Orchestra - Simple Math deluxe or Sinful Math demos

    I can always be better, so I'll always try. Supporter

    2021, will you think about me? Here's last year's list. Made it through 290 albums last year, which was slightly more than the year before. Hopefully it decreases again this year as we're allowed outside again.

    Musical Goals for this Year:
    • Champion more rap music. I love hip hop culture and am aware of most major mainstream and underground releases, but looking back on my 2020 EOTY list it was reallllll light on rap albums. Part of that was simply what I gravitated to last year, but I'd like to consciously address that in 2021 by spinning ++ rap albums more.
    • Take more chances with "older" albums. Outside of my yearly #MWE project, I don't push hard to build out my catalog. Hoping that every month I can look back at an album or two from before 2000 that wouldn't have gotten a ton of shine.
    • Write more. For various reasons, I fell behind on write-ups of my favorite albums and songs at the end of each month. I'll definitely try to do more of that in 2021. (Click the month title below to link off to them!)
    Rating Scale:

    +++ = Immediate 'EOTY' Worthy
    ++ = Love

    + = Like
    * = Indifferent
    # = Dislike

    2020 Albums List:

    January
    1. River Tiber - Hypnotized EP [2020] +
    2. Jazmine Sullivan - Heaux Tales [2021] ++
    3. Casper Clausen - Better Way [2021] +
    4. Viagra Boys - Welfare Jazz [2021] *
    5. The Dirty Nil - Fuck Art [2021] ++
    6. Holly Humberstone - Falling Asleep At The Wheel [2020] +
    7. Darondo - Let My People Go [2005] +

    Favorite Songs Discovered This Year:
    Here's my full Songs of 2021 discovery playlist. Bolded songs below are top-tier.
