Top 10 2021 – Review: Faster Than Sound: Top 10 musical 2021 – Music


I have struggled to focus on new music in 2021. Faced with constant re-evaluations of whether to go to events and festivals, orally venture into more misunderstanding and try to access my knowledge. feelings about it, it felt like a tall order. Instead, I read audiobooks and podcasts almost every waking moment to achieve a neutral level of non-absorbent distraction.

The constant buzz made the cases of diving into one version, forced to think of just one thing, all the more memorable. I have been fortunate enough to do this for some of the local projects below. I remember watching the five Alexalones, nestled around the kitchen table at bandmate Lomelda’s house, during my only in-person group interview of the year. It was in July, just before the Delta variant hit Texas.

I remember other details of telephone interviews. Indoor Creature’s Caleb Fleischer Says Aquatic Themes On May Album Living in darkness were actually concerned with climate concern and the study of ecosystems, making the music video for “Ocean Blue” all the more charming, where her character falls in love with the sea. I love the anxious groove of KindKeith’s “Alive” Take what you need, about a fire at a house party. In May, he said: “It comes from my own fears, but it also comes from a desire to go to the party again.”

Like many on those lists, he managed to pull off a nuanced era of isolation creation without making a “pandemic album.”
