ICYMI 2021

I’m trying to do some of the things that have been left for a while, so here’s the latest recap on releases of 2021…

I DON’T DO LISTS…PT5

Ha ha…I don’t do lists except on here🤣🤣

OK, I do do lists but not in the sense I started this a coupe of years ago. I post things individually on twitter and Instagram to give the releases space in their own right but I suppose when I put them together in an overview here, they consist of a list 😂😂

…but there’s no preferences, order, rank and that’s what is important to me.

Right…now I’ve got that out of the way here’s the next collection and due to other comitments I am going to continue the icymi non lists for this month of January.

I DON’T DO LISTS..PT2

Here are some more eclectic releases from 2021…

I DON’T DO LISTS BUT…pt1

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…


















I Don’t Do Lists pt6

This is the final look back to releases of 2020, at least those I have listened to and posted elsewhere and is not exhaustive, so apologies if I left your release out of the 6 part series.

I Don’t Do Lists pt5

Last year was a strange year and that is probably an understatement but there were many great releases despite all the difficulties.

These 20 have been posted on twitter this month…there may be more : )

I DON’T DO LISTS…PT4

Phew…Just scraping the tip of the iceberg with these. As usual, no preferences, order, rank, whatever…
