#10:  Lealani & Snakefoot - Lealani Snakefoot

 

FHQcVQzUUAEUHnS?format=jpg&name=medium

 

This is a great art pop / synth pop / trip hop project. It's definitely timeless in a way that it's not following any of the trends from 2021. If you're a quirky pop enjoyer I would recommend. It's kinda Bjork-ish at moments but there's just a lot of production tricks that I like.

 

#9:  Kyary Pamyu Pamyu - Candy Racer

I can't tell you how good it feels to have Yasutaka Nakata back. Like, actually back, forreal this time. It's something I never would think happened and this was the full project he gave us. It's got bangers and cutsey tracks.

 

8.  Halsey - If I Can't Have Love, I Want Power

 

FHQkI03VcAYdSeG?format=jpg&name=medium

 

 

I was never, to put it mildly, a fan, so I was very impressed with this album. It even has a shoegaze track! All around well executed without being try-hard.

 

 

7.  St. Vincent - Daddy's Home

 

FHQlFVdUcAIRV9A?format=png&name=small

 

I'll be honest this is my least favorite Annie album but it being 7 is a testament to how much I am a delusional stan. BUT it has about 5 tracks that are the best songs of all time, so I'm willing to put up with a couple skips.
 
6.  Japanese Breakfast - Jubilee
 
FHQlq9ZUcAMRrDr?format=png&name=small
 
Sometimes I think indie rock is dead, but then I listen to Jubilee.
 
5.  Playboi Carti - Whole Lotta Red
 
FHQnAv1VgAQOIPA?format=jpg&name=medium
 
 
Always been a huge fan of him and this is by far my favorite release of his. It's a production showcase for sure, and his ad libs highlight it.
 
4.  Erika De Casier - Sensational
 
FHQnnvgVQAceCjx?format=png&name=small
 
Erika comes back stronger than before with a more contemplative and daring album than Essentials, with hints of Ibiza trance, and lots of 2-step and R&B (always an amazing combo)
 
3.  Poppy - Flux
 
FHQpdPMUcAE58Pp?format=png&name=medium
 
Whenever an artist releases their "serious" album I'm always hesitant. I feel like most of the time its just boring or pretentious. Poppy of all artists did the impossible, and finally, my years of stanning have been vindicated! Take that!
 
2.  Tinashe - 333
 
FHQpydXVUAEl-al?format=png&name=small
 
Tinashe is so hard to pin down because it feels like she wants to do everything all the time. And on 333, her magnum opus, she did that. She literally does everything on this album - and its all good! Seeing her live made the whole thing come together too.

Outstanding top 10, taste :clap3:

Mercurial World being your AOTY makes so much sense, considering that you stan KKB and quirky pop and this album has their influence on it :gaydonnacat1:

Mercurial World is a great #1, I just started getting into it recently (although I guess that makes sense since it's only 2 months old and I hadn't really checked for them before)

Screen Violence :worship:

The Magdalena Duo really gave us everything we wanted :jonny: 

 

....I guess I have to listen to Halsey and Poppy huh

Every Halsey album has been the "no I used to HATE her but I swear this album is good!" album since Hopeless Fountain whatever :skull:
