Episode 328: Best of 2021, Top 32 pt 1

This is the 328th edition of the Epileptic Gibbon podcast music show and the playlist to accompany it. You can CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD but note the shows are large files. The show is also available to stream via Mixcloud and the Progzilla Radio Network (the show appears on Progzilla in alternate weeks). With this show I begin my slightly delayed countdown of my favourite albums of 2021. Last year was certainly another difficult one in many ways, but one upside is that there were many great albums released in 2021, so it was difficult to settle on a top 30, so in the end I didn’t bother, and instead I went for a top 32. For this show it’s part 1 (of 3) of my 32 favourite albums of 2021. You can expect a great mixture of music in this show, and a typically eclectic playlist, with two tracks each from the albums I’ve placed between 32 and 21 in the countdown (you’ll hear the top 20 countdown over the course of the next two shows). Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.
