Actually, despite being in the middle of a pandemic maelstrom there have been some wonderful releases in 2021 as this next round up shows : )
Here are some more eclectic releases from 2021…
Every year sites, reviewers, podcasts and media, post long lists of the best of this years releases and I find this problematic for many reasons but a major one is they often miss those well under the radar releases concentrating on particular popular genres, artists and labels, as well as creating subjective lists that cause divided opinions.
I’ve always just tried to post as many of the years releases that I’ve come across during December and this year is no different. I will be posting them here, on Twitter and Instagram.
My posts are not exhaustive and omit unwittingly many many releases but given that, without any preferences, rank or order here are the first collection…

Eclectic Electronic Soundscapes –
During the past 9 years of Feminatronic I have been on a bit of a personal sonic journey around the world with the focus on human beings who just happen to identify as female and create electronic sounds /noise /music via a huge plethora of electronic means.
I’m on a semi sabbatical but here are just some of the sounds I’ve missed these past couple of months – no order, rank or preference. This playlist hopes to demonstrate some of the eclecticism that I have listened to this past couple of months but as usual it is just the tip of the iceberg.
As with all the playlists, they are jumping off points to discoveries. They are not meant to be definitive. Just let some of the tracks play onto the next….follow up on “sounds like”….see who’s following, many artists follow other artists…..
Artists as I listened to them, so it makes for an interesting playlist –
Ch Webster, Flora Holderbaum, Kat Five, AJA, Valentina Villarroel, Da Pajararan, Mona Servo, Areliz Ramos, Corset Lore, MiLENASON, Simina Oprescu, NFNR, Howie Lee and Silvia Kastel feat. Yehaiyahan ( Silvia Kastel Remix) , Ekin Fil. Katrine Amsler, Jaslyn Robertson, Kathy Hinde, PETAL/ Kei Watanabe, Loo(p)cy and Jlin.

“Syllabic Idyllic is an experiment and investigation into the essence of sound and language. What makes music distinct from noise and chaos? Can chaos be beautiful? Should we accept traditional definitions of music or burn down this distinction between noise and music? What does our music say about us and how we relate to existence?”
released May 25, 2021

“There is no exquisite beauty… without some strangeness in the proportion.”
― Edgar Allan Poe
There is beauty in darkness and walls of sound.
