YoYo's Top 25 of 2021

Incredible year for music with some incredible new finds, as well as some old favorite artists of mine making big comebacks. Let's dive in.

Album title of the year
15Yon
order of violence


This band has way too few listeners, and I'm super grateful for MarsKid's review for bringing it into my life. This album is absolutely punishing and the beginning of an amazing journey for Yon.
14Thrice
Horizons/East


When it hits, it hits HARD. But that last song can frik off
13Dvne
Etemen Ænka


This grew off me a bit, but it's still phenomenal. Dvne creates atmosphere like few other bands working today.
12Black Country, New Road
For the first time


Opus is literally just a Thank You Scientist song and I wouldn't have it any other way
11Typhoon (USA-OR)
Sympathetic Magic


Typhoon decided to mellow out a bit after 2018's titanic Offerings, and the result is my personal favorite album they've ever made. Consistent throughout and contains some of the most majestic moments of the year.
10Laura Stevenson
Laura Stevenson


Laura's new life as a mother has impacted her music in a lot of ways, but the quality remains the same. You get a healthy mix of all of her styles here, and this is a great bounce back from 2019's disappointing (just my opinion y'all!) The Big Freeze.
9Scarypoolparty
The Act of Forgiveness


If this were trimmed down a bit, it would be a contender for AOTY. Alejandro is a freakishly talented human being and I look forward to what he does next.
8BROCKHAMPTON
Roadrunner: New Light, New Machine


WHO LET THE DOPE BOYS OUUUUUUTTTTT
7Origami Angel
GAMI GANG


*trap beat intensifies*
6Little Simz
Sometimes I Might Be Introvert


The first half of this album is some of the best music of the entire year. The back half isn't quite as strong, but tracks 1-9 here are an unbelievable run.
5I Feel Fine
The Cold In Every Shelter


It's like warm fuzzy emo Christmas caroling
4Porter Robinson
Nurture


This one's for you johnny : )
3A Great Big Pile of Leaves
Pono


We out here vibin. The ultimate summer release.
2Every Time I Die
Radical


They're unfortunately in shambles right now, but ETID continue to deliver incredible jams 20 years in. Some of their most unhinged and volatile songs reside on Radical, and Goose is easily the best drummer they've ever had.
1Sweet Trip
A Tiny House, In Secret Speeches, Polar Equals


My first 5 since 2017, one of the most consistent and jaw-dropping albums I've ever heard. Sweet Trip have returned with their best music yet.
