BEST MUSIC OF 2021 -
Phil Bjorneberg - dj, music aficionado
Okay, here goes...my fave of the year is The Shadracks...led by the son of Billy Childish, this garage rock masterstroke is a non-stop monster
.rest of top 5 is Dinosaur Jr, who keep staying fresh while adding blistering guitar to every fucking song! / The Bevis Frond who is basically one guy who has put out 20ish lps since the 80's...includes stoned psych, amazing guitar and fantastic lyrics about growing old.... / Vacation-a smoking hot band / top-5 rounded out by Chime School...never has a band name SO described the band....driving jangle pop that sounds like a mix of Byrds, Ride and Teenage Fanclub.
Rounding out my top 10 are: The Goon Sax...a fantastic New Zealand band that keeps their charm while getting more dark on their latest / Iceage....this is epic and somehow reminds me of Exile on Main Street???? / The Umbrellas...more amazing jangle / dream pop / The Reds, Pinks & Purples....the leader is very Morrisey-esque in tone and attitude... / my number 10 is a tie between many bands very worthy of checking out: Arab Strap/ Brilliant Swords/ Mogwai / The Blips / and Good Morning....dig it and thanks for listening
