My 2021 in music

Hello friends and enemies,
It's been a while. In lieu of a best music of the year list (I no longer pretend to rank things in some kind of permanent hierarchy), here is every 2021 (or 2021-ish) new release and reissue/archival release I added to my collection in physical media form, in rough order of acquisition. I'm ignoring digital releases, so Myriam Gendron and Springtime will just have to wait until 2022. Goodbye until 2022, suckers.
