2021 Music

music I loved in 2021. please note that I work in the music industry, and my employer has relationships w some of the artists herein. as always, I’d maintain that these lists are personal to me & represent my interests and listening for the year as best as possible, regardless, but I prefer to disclose up front so you can take or leave the suggestions with a grain of salt. obviously my listening habits are shaped by this work & intractable from it; but this is a personal list & doesn’t represent views of my employer etc.
