Amazin’ Avenue Audio (The Show), Episode 85: 2021 Music Recap

Chris and Brian run down some of their favorite records of 2021. 

Welcome to Amazin’ Avenue Audio (The Show), the new/old favorite from Amazin’ Avenue editors Chris McShane and Brian Salvatore.

Every week, Brian and Chris pick albums to recommend for your hours spent not watching or obsessing about the Mets, and once a year, they dedicate an entire episode to recommending some new music. This is that episode! Each host picks 5 albums they really enjoyed this year to cap off another year of new music. We’ve also put together a Spotify playlist so you can check out a sampling of the picks right here.

Chris’s Picks:

Parquet Courts - Sympathy for Life
Steve Gunn - Other You
Amyl and the Sniffers - Comfort to Me
Dinosaur Jr - Sweep It Into Space
Mdou Moctar - Afrique Victime

Brian’s Picks:

Aeon Station - Observatory
Colleen Green - Cool
SiP / Prezzano - SiP / Prezzano
Lou Barlow - Reason to Live
Low - Hey What
