2021 has been a very interesting year. Thankfully, it’s not a bad as 2020. That being said, the music released this year so far is on fire. It’s only been half a year and these albums have been on constant rotation. I personally can’t wait to see what else is coming this year (EVERY TIME I DIE PLEASE!!!!). This list is in NO PARTICULAR ORDER!!! If I forgot any, let me know and I’ll be sure to check them out!!!!
Genghis Tron- Dream Weapon:
End You- Aimless Dread:
The Pretty Reckless- Death By Rock And Roll:
Rob Zombie- The Lunar Injection Kool Aid Eclipse Conspiracy:
I thought this would be a fun new topic and I can showcase a few albums that have been in my constant rotation for a while now. It’s all over the place genre wise too which makes this topic quite fun. I don’t believe in guilty pleasures anymore. Like whatever music you like. Enjoy it and play it loud! Here are 5 albums to sink your teeth into this week!
01) If It Kills You- Infinite Hum:
This band is absolutely fantastic. They’ve got this really great post-hardcore vibe mixed with the right amount of 90’s alternative. One of the best new bands I’ve heard since the turn of the century. Just by listening to this album too, you can feel the energy just waiting to burst out.
02) In Parallel- Fashioner:
Another fantastic band that should be on your radar. This album in particular has yet to leave my record player or my bedtime playlist since I got it. The perfect balance of ambient and heavy along with bits of shoegaze and dream pop. You can get swept away by this album. It truly is phenomenal.
03) Genghis Tron- Dream Weapon:
So far in 2021, this is my album of the year. This is 100% an album and it should be played that way. It’s a journey all in itself. Everything about it from the layers, tones, songs, performances it all comes together to make a masterful album. Not only is it my album of the year, it’s also one of the best comeback albums I’ve ever heard. This is an album that, like the other two above, deserves your attention.
04) Greg Puciato- Child Soldier; Creator Of God:
This was my album of the year for 2020 and I’ve yet to go a day without listening to at least a few of the songs. As a whole, it’s a masterpiece. One of the coolest and best solo albums out there. There’s so much to digest on this that every listen you find yourself getting more and more into it. I could go into a ton of detail about how amazing this album is but, it’s more fun for you to listen.
05) Rob Zombie- The Lunar Injection Kool Aid Eclipse Conspiracy:
This is one of the best albums Rob Zombie has been involved in. It’s got parts that are reminiscent of White Zombie as well as early Rob solo. This is just a really fun album. It’s the album that fans have been wanting and it delivers for damn sure. I recommend this album when you need a good jolt of energy and some fun in your life.
