It was a year of recovery and hope with a sprinkle of setbacks. Music had no setbacks and some of the best albums of the last decade were released with the list we have below. Check it out and let us know your thoughts.

10. Jungle – Loving In Stereo

They put the FUN in FUNK. These guys keep you moving and smiling with their newest release. SEE “Keep Moving” below:

9. The War On Drugs – I Don’t Live Here Anymore

Adam Granduciel and company bring a more joyous side to their music with an 80s synth edge and expansive sounds. Their most recent release employs even sharper melodies.

8. Sam Evian – Time To Melt

Modern psychedelia with some really interesting and unique sounds that immediately caught our attention. Sam Evian is an NYC-based instrumentalist and producer and his new album is definitely worth a listen. SEE “Time To Melt” below:

7. Japanese Breakfast – Jubilee 

Japanese Breakfast’s Michelle Zauner said about the album, “After spending the last five years writing about grief, I wanted our follow up to be about joy” and that’s exactly what they deliver in this masterpiece. SEE “Savage Good Boy” below:

6. Snail Mail – Valentine

Lindsey Jordan’s second album documents love in all stages and it’s f’ing brilliant. She takes on a larger and poppier sound while keeping her songwriting dazzlingly sharp and passionate.

5. King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard – Butterfly 3000

Happy music for the masses. Finely-constructed sprawl of synth programming and MIDI sequences on the band’s 18th album.

4. Jazmine Sullivan – Heaux Tales

An incredible voice mixed with tales of love and sex make for a great album. Check out “Pick Up Your Feelings” below:

3. Pond – 9

Aussie band’s 9th album and probably one of their greatest pieces of funk-psychedelic rock yet. SEE “America’s Cup” below:

2. Elton John – The Lockdown Sessions

The 5th collaborative effort by Sir Elton John written during the covid-19 lockdown when he was forced to halt his Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour. The magic and passion runs wild through each track with a very talented group of artists.

1. The Beatles – Let It Be (Reissue)

Who else could claim this spot? I mean it is a reissue but a marvelous reissue full of some new material, demos, alternative versions, and of course the FILM edited by Peter Jackson.
