My Favorite Albums of 2021 🎶
Shuffle Sundays #52 • A year in review
Hello and welcome to Shuffle Sundays, a weekly newsletter with music recommendations to help you find your next obsession.
So here it is… the 52nd issue of this newsletter! When I started this project in the first week of 2021, I had just one and only goal: to publish one issue per week for the whole year. It was the way I found to have some sort of commitment, without leaving things too loose in the air, with the fear to be committing myself forever with something I wasn’t quite sure how it was going to work. This has been quite a tricky year, and I am thankful for you for sticking around with me week after week.
In moving forward, I will be taking a little vacation for a few weeks to rethink the format and frequency and should be back with more issues at the end of January. Until then, without further ado, here are some of my favorite albums of 2021, in chronological order by release date.
🗣 • this was originally a list with 35 albums, but in order not to make this email much longer than usual, and to avoid the message being cut before the end, I decided to condense the original list into a smaller selection of 10, so if you’re curious about the other 25, you can click here and check it out in my blog.
